Boarders Plan 
Gala Weekend 

The Boarders' Closed Week-

an interesting weekend for all 
boarders. Activities scneduled

Friday night movie, a Satm day 
night stag dance, swimming, 
and a chance for all boarders 
to get acquainted. 

Carol Clem, Resident Stu- 
dents' President, invites th'o 
boarders to join in the week- 
end's fun. 


As the new president of 
Mount St. Mary's College, 
Sister Rebecca will head the 
Administration during the com- 
ing year. Sister Rebecca, who 
was Chairman of the Nursing 
Department until her appoint- 
ment, succeeds Sister Rose Ger 
trude as president. 

Other new executive officers

Anita Joseph will serve as Re- 
gistrar and Sister Mildred

direct the Modern Language 
Department while Sister Rich- 
ard Joseph will guide the Nurs-

Cecilia Louise. 




Here's TOBY — the Mount's 
ferocious watchdog-to-be. Right 
now Toby is everyone's friend. 
He likes to sleep and run and 
play with old black shoes. His 
brown mournful eyes look hap- 
piest when he is the center of 
attention. Yes, this is Toby, our 
Big Man on Campusl

Time brings about change. Time has passed quickly at the 
Mount. Not just the one, two or three years that her present 
students can recall. But the five, fifteen or thirty years her 
faculty can remember. She has grown to maturity. As she 
matured, she changed from a one-building school to her present 
seven. Now again changes have occured. Two members of her 
religious faculty, at the college for the better part of the past 
two decades, have been transferred elsewhere. These two, Sister 
Rosemary and Sister Berenice, played important parts as the col- 
lege grew to maturity. 


Sister Rosemary, now at Alemany High School in San Fern- 
ando, served as the superior here for the past six years. For the 
first three of these years, she also served as the president of the 
college. During her tenure, the physical plant of the college 
was increased by the construction of the fine , arts building, 
Marian Hall, and the residence building, Carondelet Hall. Sister 
also spent numerous hours Instructing foreign-born students in 
the English language. Prior to coming to the Mount, Sister had 

served as Provincial, and had exhibited great interest and had 
expanded much energy for the Mount's progress. 


Having assumed similar duties, Sister Berenice is now station- 
ed at St. Mary's Academy. For the past fifteen years, sister 
counseled, admonished and befriended her Mounties away from 
home. To her, the complaints, worries and woes of several 
hundred boarders were confined. With her, their joys were 
shared. Burdened with the business end of such things as purchas- 
ing food, distribution of linen, and obtaining innumerable light 
bulbs, Sister nonetheless, often waited for the last Mounties to 
return home before going to bed; often obtaining only a few 
hours sleep. 

Authority, of its very nature, den-rand* respect and obedience. 
Respect and obedience were tendered to both. Authority, temp- 
ered with love, commands that love be given in return. Both 
tempered their exercise of authority, no matter how difficult, 
with deep Christ-like love. For this, far more than for all their 
tangible accomplishment, Mounties, both past and present say 
"Thank you

Applications for Service 
Contracts will be available to 
interested students at any 
iime during the school year. 
By the old system, students 
made contracts only at the 
beginning of the semester and 
a deduction was made from 
hc-r tuition at the same time. 
Now, a student may apply at 
any time and she will receive 
a salary each month for the 
work she accomplishes thai 

Kiddie Korps 

The Peace Corps, known un- 
officially to-some non-support- 
ers as "Kennedy's Kiddie 
Korps" has made great strides 
since its official birth on- 
March 1, 1961. There are, at 
present, 8 groups in training, 
and one group of 80 has re- 
cently been sent overseas to 
Ghana and Tanganyika. 

84% of the sclfctfil volun- 
teers are college graduates. 
.Most have done graduate work, 
and all but three out of the 
total number of 450 have had 
at least a \ear of college. 70"., 
of the volunteers are men, and 
will be sent on construction 
projects. The average age. is 
23, bid ages range from 18 
to 57. The largest number is 
from California, although New 
Vork, Illinois, and Pennsylva- 
nia have swelled the rank*. 

A recruiting drive is being 
planned this fall; also, the 
questionnaires (12.000 of them 
already on file in Washington) 
will be revised. It is planned 
that 1000 volunteers will be 
overseas or in training by 
1962. Two nationwide testing 
days for applicants are also 
being considered.

New Advisor 
Joins View 

The VIEW staff regrets to 
announce that its former ad- 
visor. Sister Thomas Bernard, 
is no longer with us. After 
toiling for three long years 
with the unruly members of 
our staff, Sister has at long 
last been given a breathing 
spell, and is now to be found 
in the principal's office at St. 
Mary's Academy. To her we 
bid a fond farewell, to her, 
not only as an advisor, but 
also as a valued friend. We 
hope she will continue to read 
our paper; before long, she 
may be the only one. 

At the same time, we hasten 
to greet Sister Mary, our new 
advisor, who is, as yet un- 
scarred. We hope we will have 
her with us for a long time to 
come — or at least until the 
end of the year if she can 
stand it that long.

always final purchase: "But

aren't really too practical for

No matter what the prob- 
lem, all will meet with lifting 
solutions so that high fashion 
can keep its place on the col- 
lege level. In ten years others 
will look at the picture of 
today's co-ed and classify her 
as strictly outdated. (Think of 
the long-skirted damsels of 
1950.) Face it. The way you 
look is the way American 
manufacturers and buyers 
want you to look. They deter- 
mine whether "The Look" will 
be fat or thin, long legged or 
no legged — they're your boss. 
Only one alternative is yours, 
be old fashioned or go square 
toed. Of course, we could 
ahvays go back to saddle ox- 
fords and blue uniforms.

wisely assuming that the ef- 
forts of more than one person 
are necessary to fill the place 
of Betsy Fleming. We will ap- 
preciate any comments, an- 
nouncements, criticism (verb- 
al) via the VIEW office, and 
will attempt to maintain the 
high calibre of the column. ( i.

A sketchy outline of coming 
events has reached the desert 
outpost where dwells one-half 
the responsibility for this col- 
umn, and we pass, on for your 
edification the following: 

Those fortunate enough to 
board are reminded of Board-

bers of the upper classes, the 
accompanying Frosh Frolics

less nights for the youngest 
of the clan.

dates for the first Residents' 
Mid-Week Leave, Big-Little 
Sister Beach Party, All Club 
Orientation Day, and other 
Stimulating activities, were 
said dates available. Unfortu- 
nately, we live a total 6f 700 
miles from the Big City; our 
esteemed Student Body Veep 
has relegated the co-ordinating 
council calendar or whatever 
to the depths of her sporran, 
from which she is loath to ex- 
tract anything, a n d we are 
convinced that our SB Social 
Chairman is lost in the wilds 
of Big Bef-r with naught to 
comfort her save a carton of 
stale Gir! Stout cookies. Thus, 
confusion rains, but lo! the sun 
appeareth soon . . . 

Keep reading 50-50 for news 
of off-beat and on-beat proj- 
ects ... on the agenda: a 
crusade to wipe out trading 
stamps . . . and, as a favor 
to a feeble-minded friend, we 
shall close with splizyx. That's

mediocre, and at rare points

irrelevant, and dull--mainly

many of the large universities. 
As many of the "problem

A Place For Everyone in Campus Clubs 

Campus scientists, nurses, literary-ites, 
artists, musicians and woul<Pbe politicos — all 
can find comrades with kindred interests in 
the Mount's various departmental clubs, which 
will introduce themselves to the student body 
on Club Day, Sept. 27. Displays, posters and 
scrapbooks will be on exhibit in the Circle, 

with representatives of each club on hand to 
greet prospective members. 

Welcome Teas in September and early 
October will further acquaint students with 
the clubs and their members and activities. 
Officers have already scheduled many events 
for the coming year. 

White Caps Plan 
Mass and Mixer 

The annual fall mixer-go- 
round will receive a push from 
the student nurses, who have 
scheduled their yearly White 
Caps Stag for Sept. 30. All are 
urged to come to this event. 

A family Mass and breakfast 
in honor of sophomore nursing

sorority girl for '61? Here's a 
peek into what's stirring. 


Saturday evening, October 6, 
1961, Kappa Delta Chi Soror- 
ity will holds its annual Polka 
Party. The Magyar House at 
1975 Washington Blvd. will 
again provide its Germanic at- 
mosphere for the occasion. 
Couples will come attired in 
costumes reminiscent of the 
Old World tradition. The 
strains of the quaint polka will 
be played from 8 to 12 p.m. 

The Kappas enjoyed summer 
get-togethers devoted to the 
preparing of their traditional 
handmade bids. Madelyn Fla- 
herty, historian and chairman 
of the bid committee, reports 
that the fancy doll-shaped bids! 
will be available, at $2 per cou- 
pie, in the Circle from October]

It's traditional for each soro- 
rity to do some type of charita-

year. TAZ will again give of 
their time to entertain at St. 
Anne's Hospital for Unwed

again receive the time and ef- 
forts of the Kappas. 


Each sorority looks anxious- 
ly toward their first meeting. 
This is the meeting where jun- 
iors and seniors are invited to 
become honorary members of 
the sorority. Of course, besides

Mount Graduate 
Joins Peace Corps 

Mary Ellen Walsh, who 
graduated from the Mount 
last spring, is the first Mountie 
selected for the Peace Corps. 

I lary Ellen is a field re- 
presentative for the Pacific-

of October she will visit col- 
leges and universities in this 
area recruiting new members 
and giving tests. Her travels 
v\ 1 1 take her to several slates 
including Alaska. 

Mary Ellen spent the sum-

NF - SI! 

This summer the student 
council voted to place a pro- 
posal to withdraw from the 
National Federation of Cath- 
College Students (NFCCS) 
1 efore the student assembly. 
The basis for this proposal 
sfi i. is from. several roots. The 
primary charge leveled against 
NF by the student council is 
that the organ exists as an in- 
tual, incohesive and, 
hence, useless group. Second- 
arily, they charge that NF s 
•expense could readily be used 
for some other purpose. Like- 
wise, that, for the time and ef- 
Fort expended, there are, if | 
any, few tangible results. Are 
the charges fair? 

Although the ineKcCfcuaSJity 
nnil incohresrveiress of NF must 
be conceded as a fact, il aiighl 
bt- well, v.c suggest, to examine 
Why this is mi. Is the f« ul t 
with (In- national organising? 
This mi';h( indeed seem to be 
wlit-re it lies. Hii( — is it the, 
real failure? 

A \\ each lank 
We submit that the whole of 

any organization is only so 
strong as its weakest compo- 
nent part, that NF is only so 
strong as its weakest region, 
that any region is only so 
strong as its weakest member. 
Naturally, with the diminish- 
ing participation, co-operation 
and interest among the mem- 
bers of this region, it has be- 
come very weak and ineffect- 

It has also been implied in 
these charges of "uselessness," 
thai the apostolic and informa- 
tive work NF could accomplish 
(il working to its full poten- 
tial) might he as well carried 

(Continued on Page 4) 

NF- NO! 

Perhaps NFCCS as it is set 
up could be a vital, important 
organization. Maybe it is in 
some regions and on some cam- 
puses. But Student Council, 
after studying the organization 
and talking to national officers 
as well as analyzing it on this 
campus, voted unanimously to 
withdraw. The reasons for this 
action are: 

Catholic Organization 
1. NFCCS is a totally Cath- 
olic organization. The Pope has 
expressed his desire for Cath- 
olics to go out from totally 
Catholic groups and to express 
their views in non-religious- 
affiliated organizations. We 


The opfniops expressed on tliis p»£< ar« those «f the writers Hnd do not necessarily 

reflect tlie i*i-\v« oi t l ie vt;ul 01 die oaltoge. 

feel that our opinion can better 
be expressed by NSA, the Na- 
tional Student Association. 


2. In this region, very little 
has been done by NFCCS. The 
programs proposed by the na- 
tional office are geared to the 
East Coast, where there is bet- 
ter membership and concen- 
trated activity. 


3. The cost of NFCCS per 
year is approximately $375. 
The benefits do not measure 
up to the expense. This money 
could be spent on speaker pro- 
grams or other campus needs. 

Limited Effectiveness 

4. As NFCCS is set up, it is 
limited in its effectiveness in 
regard to expression of opinion 
on contemporary issues. Only 
the National Congress can de- 
termine policy. Since the Na- 
tional Congress meets once a 
year, issues which arise be- 
tween Congresses lie dormant 
for a year.

The Facts 


Students, as searchers for 
truth and as a part of the 
world-wide student commu- 
nity, must express their 
thought and opinions. NSA as 
the national student union in 
the U.S. is probably the best 
means for us to do this. NSA 
is a member of the Interna- 
tional Student Congress which 
is made up of the student 
union of the free world. Stu- 
dents from Asia, Africa, Eu- 
rope and the Americas discuss 
student problems which in 
countries are involved

It. iii-oii with other regions 
that the Cnlifoffiia-Ne\

to the lack of honest leader-

officers and partially to the 
lack of knowledge of what a 
region is supposed to do on 
the part of member scb

"But, Mother, we have to read five novels in one sem- 
ester" is the lower division point of view regarding the English 
department . . . and then we have Peg Langhans, who is- posi- 
tive she is going to be hit by a car just before she has a 
chance to read 20 novels in one semester. 

It is our humble opinion that units should be given for 
meetings attended during the school year ... or on the other 
hand, one could major in meetings and attend classes as a 
co-curricular activity. This would eliminate worry over when 
to squeeze in homework and facilitate the keeping of orderly 
minutes. It would also alleviate the trouble and expense of 
buying books. Not that meetings aren't requisite, of course, 
but it's the meetings to plan meetings that cause the trouble. 

Speaking of freshmen (refer to paragraph 1, sentence 1), 
one conscientious lass wondered if she should wear her sword 
to bed during Green Week — we recommend her to our local 
Civil Defense Organization ... an unofficial poll reveals a 
ghastly number of frosh ignorant as to the respective colors 
of the union and confederate armies ... an attempt to palm 
off chocolate cigarettes and Mexican Raleighs on upperclass- 
men ended in utter failure for two of the younger set. 

N.B. Our sympathies to all the freshmen and new sopho- 
mores who "ill never succumb to the delights of coming upon 
a dead seal — downwind — during those P. E. hikes. 

Dates: NSA leadership conference is now scheduled for 
October 5 at 3 P.M. Anyone is welcome, especially freshmen 
and new students . . . Kappas invite all to raise their steins 
at the annual Polka Party, October 6. . . . Boarders may forget 
their burdensome cares on a mid-week leave Wednesday, 
October 11, and Loyola sophs promise fun and frolic at their 
mixer, Friday the thirteenth. We refrain from commenting 
upon the appropriateness on the date. 

Monday the 16th is Founder's Day at the Mount — offi- 
cial reception of the freshmen to the Mount ... St. Vincent's 
will hold a mixer on the 20th . . . followed on the 21st by tin- 
Founder's Day Ball. During the week of the 22nd the more 
courageous of the Mount girls are invited to vie for the alleged 
honor of Queen of Loyola's Homecoming.

Judy, Donna, Mount Grads 
Med. Technologists at V.A. 

BLOOD BANKERS — Mr. Peterson, head of the serology lab at 
V.A., looks on as Judy Brow (seated) and Donna Frauenheim 
consider pint of blood from the Blood Bank. 

Veterans — no, medical tech- 
nologists — yes. Although they 
haven't been in the armed 
services, Judy Brow and 
Donna Frauenheim may still 
be found at Sawtelle. . . in the 
research laboratories, that is. 

Judy and Donna both grad- 
uated from the Mount last 
June as bacteriology majors 
and chemistry minors. Having 
spent one year of internship 
during the Mount's training 
program at the Veteran's 
aimstration, they went to 
work there immediately after 

Blood Processors 
Judy is m charge of the 
blood bank at the hospital. 
Donna works in the Serology 
lab. Both girls are respon 
f«r the processing of blood be- 
fore it is put in the pump that 

is used during open heart 

"They are very generous 
girls. I've seen them stay all 
night in order to be ready to 
help on an operation at 3:00 
in the morning." commented 
Mr. Peterson, head of the 
Serology lab. 

"Mucho" Opportunities 

"It's such a new field, full 
of opportunities, especially for 
women," Donna said. 'Besides 
the science, itself, is 
constantly changing and im- 
proving," added Judy. 'It's an 
'exciting' field." 

Sorority girls both, Judy 
and Donna were Gammas. 
Both started with their 
major in their frosh year 
and went on to take courses 
in bacteriology, serology, he- 
matology, immunohematology, 
bacterial genetics and micro- 

Pow-Wows Hit 
Campus Scene 

A New Deal is hitting the 
jlount campus in the form of 
discussions to arouse closer 
communication between stu- 
dents and faculty. At the stu- 
dent council meeting, Septem- 
ber 25, council members dis- 
pensed with general business 
to consider with Dr. Oard, 
faculty representative, the set- 
up and agenda for these dis- 

The discussions will be held 
at Junior-Senior and Frosh- 
Soph Assemblies scheduled for 

By openly stating opinions 
and inquiries on current cam- 
pus problems, faculty .and 
students can attain a better 
understanding of each other's 
positions and problems. 

The following topics were 
chosen for the first assem- 
blies : 

1.) The Honor System 
2.) The excess of activities 
at M.S.M.C. 

3.) Closer faculty - student 

4.) Opinions of faculty con- 
cerning students in stu- 
dent gov't 

5.) Faculty - student dis- 
cussions on topics which 
the student body can 
take a stand on 

6.) The necessity <>l depart- 
mental clubs 

7.) Students' profess i o n a I 

8.) Preparation for respon- 
sibility alter graduation 
9.) Curriculum planning 

At the assemblies, each dis- 
cussion group will include 15 
students and two faculty mem- 
bers. The results of these 
meetings will be available to 
both students and faculty. 

A committee was chosen to 
handle the publicity for these 
assemblies and the meeting 
was brought to a close. 

Mount Hails Mr. Bottone 
New Drama Instructor 

MSMC Eaters' 
Show First Love 


Keeping in mind Feurbach's 
theory that "Man is what he 
eats" Mount "eaters" welcome 
the new food service. 

Thrice daily these amateur 
gourmets endeavor to support 
Shaw's statement: "There is 
no love sincerer than the love 
of food". The opportunities 
for this culinary courtship 
are limitless when dainty deli- 
cacies and more starchy num- 
bers continue to woo their 
wide-eyed suitors. Before din- 
ing the indolger is required to 
after a few classic lines: 'Edo, 
Ergo Sum. I eat therefore I 
am. (Anon: Parody of Des- 
es). After dinner, campus 
"Eves" approach the enticing 
fruit trays. 

Ignoring Jeremy Taylors' 
warning that "A full gorged 
belly never produced a 
sprightly mind" students 
sprightly advance to thi 

jjree of graduate gourmet 

"Live today for today," 
claims Mr. Thomas Bottone, 
new instructor in the Drama 
department. Mr. Bottone came 
to L A and the Mount after 
professional work in movies, 
stage, and T.V. to teach Voice 
and Diction and Theater Ap- 
preciation classes. He also as- 
sumes the position of Produc- 
tion Assistant and Technical 
Manager for the Mount plays 
this year. 

This will be his first year 
as a college instructor, al- 
though he has given private 
dramatic coaching to indivi- 
duals and groups throughout 
the country. Mr. Bottone chose 
teaching to investigate an 
area he had not known on a 
student level, in order to seek 
out his place in life.

Receiving his B.A. at the 
University of Denver in 1955,

Still a very active alumnus 
of Sigma Chi Fraternity, Mr. 
Bottone has travelled from 
Coast to Coast and up into 
Canada giving lectures to fiat

The purpose of the American National Red Cross Inter- 
national Summer student program was directed toward in- 
creasing knowledge and understanding between young people 
of the United States and members of the Red Cross societies 
of selected South American Countries. 

Students and leaders, representing the entire United 
States, met in Washington, D.C., for a week's orientation and 
subsequent journey to South America. Alex Weiss, from 
Brandeis University, and myself were the college adult leaders. 

The entire program covered Mexico, Venezuela, Columbia, 
Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. I went to Chile with a group 
of fourteen high school students and leaders. We arrived in 
Santiago on the 15th of July. During the following week, we 
participated in a study center with a group of students from 
various parts of Chile. Here, the seed of a future Junior Red 
Cross, national and international, and sought means for or- 
ganizing and getting acceptance of the JRC, in relation to 
students and faculty. 

When the study center ended, we left our friends and 
traveled to Southern Concepcion, the third largest city in 
Chile. Here, as in the other cities we visited, we were treated 
to the experiences of home hospitality. We visited schools, 
attended and spoke at school assemblies, and mingled with 
the students all day every day. 

One day we visited a hospital for anemic and undernour- 
ished children. During this visit, we were t:ik<-n (o a nearby 
path where each one planted a tree in honor of the delegation 
from the United States. This was only one of the wonderful 
gestures of the Chilean people. Their department of education 
had arranged the school vacation time for the purpose of 
making our study (rip as successful as possible. 

We were there to help, to offer what we could; and 
we were also there to receive and to learn. The profits from 
this trip went deeper than the profits from the d\y 
lectures, speeches and assemblies. 

The generosity, kindness and hospitality of the Chilean 
people is what came home with me. Chile can never a 
be a piece of geography, a narrow strip of land on the South 
American Continent, Working with, being with these students 
gave life to Chile for me.

out in a secular organ such as 
NSA, that NF has fostered a 
"Ghetto Attitude," that it has 
fostered an extremely narrow 
point of view. If NSA is hav- 
ing some difficulty reconciling 
ils liberal and conservative ele- 
ments, what Hill it do with 
new and divergent "splinter 
groups"? Wouldn't our Cath- 
olic college element in NSA (if 
our withdrawal were accom- 
plished) remain a "ghetto"-like 
group? Could we subscribe in 

complete honesty to all of 
NSA's stands — especially on 
moral and political issues- 
and to basic philosophies? 
Would we be allowed to dissent 

Then there is the entirely 
pragmatic question of profit 
and loss. Is there any profit 
to be gained from losing 50c 
per capita (of which there are 
about 700 capites running 
loose) for membership in the 
only organization which exists 
for Catholic colleges? 

We urge you to think before 
you decide.

Library Displays 
UN Information 

To commemorate United 
Nations Day October 24, the 
library is displaying UN in- 
formation this week. 

The display includes dolls 
representing UN nations, a 
map showing member coun- 
tries, and a diagram explain- 
ing the agencies of the UN. 

In the main reading room, 
flags of UN nations are dis- 
i layed. There are also bro- 
chures from the vertical file 
which give ;. variety of infor- 
ion about the UN. One 
book has copies of the UN 
rter in different languages. 

This is c ; of several dis- 
plays planned by the library 
veryone's enjoyment. 

Mount faculty members 
have been busily coming and 
going from conferences and 
meetings recently. 

Sister Eloise Therese at- 
tended a meeting of the Mo- 
dern Language Association of 
Northern and Southern Cali- 
fornia at Fresno State Col- 
lege. During the discussions 
Sister was the presiding of- 
ficer of the French section. 

The general theme of the 
meeting was the impact of 
the National Defense Educa- 
tion Act on the teaching of 
foreign languages in gram- 
mar school, high school, and 
college. The state of Califor- 
nia recently passed a law 
which requires- elementary 
schools to teach a foreign 
language in all grades begin- 
ning in 1965. 

Sister Eloise Therese is 
also president of the Los 
Angeles chapter of the 
American Association of 
Teachers of French. 

Sister Margaret Marie and 
Sister Cecilia Louire traveled 
south to San Diego for a 
ing of the Southern 
California chapter of Sigma 
Delta Epsilon. They met at 
the home of Dr. Meyers, who 
is the lu-nd of the d. 
of microbiology at San Diego 
State College. 

Sigma Delta Epsilon is a 
national fraternity foi 
uate women scientists. Its 
members are in all fields of 

science, from physics to home 

This chapter meets four 
times a year for social and 
business purposes. The mem- 
bers are addressed by a pro- 
minent speaker in the scienti- 
fic field. On this occasion the 
topic was hormones and their 
relation to cancer. 

Sister Richard Joseph will 
attend a nursing conference 
in Seattle.

Nuclear Testing: Moral or Not? 

Historian Says 'Yes — Immoral' 

October 24, 1961 

Priest-Scientist Says 'Not Immoral' 

In the student-faculty discussion on Oct- 
ober 16, Father O'Reilly opposed Dr. Oard by 
stating that nuclear testing was not morally 
wrong. In order to consider the morality of an 
action, he said, one must consider the effects 
of the action. The principle of double effect is 
operative in the question of nuclear testing. 
We have to consider both the danger involved 
and the good to be accomplished. 
Father claimed that there is no im- 
mediate danger in nuclear testing. Test- 
ing weapons does not necessitate their use 
in war. Also the fallout from the tests th;;t 
have been made increased the level of 
radioactivity only 5%, which, if it is dis- 
persed by the winds, does not constitute 
a threat to human life. 

On the other hand, there are definitely 
good effects from nuclear testing, Father said. 
There is a great deal of scientific data that 
can be learned about the atom and radioactiv- 
ity through the explosion of nuclear weapons. 
And the testing at this point is a war pre- 
ventative measure, since it maintains a balance 
of power between the leading nations. 
S •>, Father argued, if nuclear testing 
has good effects and no immediate bad ef- 
fects, and if it is not an evil means in 
itself; we are justified, and in a sense 
obliged to continue testing. There might 
be a time when nuclear testing could be 
possibly become morally wrong, if the fall- 
out level became dangerously high or if 
it were done with the express purpose of 
unjust destruction, But that time is not 
now and may never come. 

So for the present, basing our decision on 
the knowledge we have, nuclear testing is 
morally right 

\ w< v WESTBERG 

The recent student-faculty discussion on 
nuclear testing saw Dr. Oard take a stand 
against the continuation of such testing, on 
the basis that such action would be immoral. 


It is Dr. Oard's contention that, since the 
effects of radio-active fallout are not known, 
nuclear testing should be ceased for military 
purposes due to the possible danger to human 

Dr. Oard went on to state that continued 
nuclear testing by the nations already in pos- 
session of nuclear weapons and by the nations 
which would soon possess these weapons would 
greatly add to the danger of possible war. 


Further, contended Dr. Oard, it is, at the 
present time, highly improbable that the Unit- 
ed States is seriously faced with the threat Oi 
war with Russia. 

The funds now used for nuclear testing, 
said Dr. Oard, could better be used in tne 
i'ield of economic aid to less advanced nations, 
thereby building up a strong cordon of United 
States allies among these uncommitted na- 
tions; this also would lessen the threat of war. 

The weapons that the United States now 
possesses are sufficient to destroy the enemy; 
continued nuclear testing would only insure 
that which was already certain, i. e., that the 
enemy was destroyed.

It is often said "the pen is mightier than the sword." In the case of Mrs. 
Helen Pickett, this is undeniably so. A pen has conquered the Southland for the 
Mount; a pen has conquered many other places for the Mount. Both pens are one, 
and that innocent instrument of conquest belongs to Mrs. Pickett. In her work as 
publicist and publicity director for MSMC, she has made it known as an academic 
center and a cultural center. 

Because of her recent resignation, Mrs. Pickett has ceased publicizing the 
Mount officially. But as an alumna and a Catholic woman, she will continue to 
make her alma mater known. 

For her work under either guise, she deserves a humble "thank-you" and a

VIEW Presents Results 
Of Junior-Senior Assembly 

Faculty members, seniors and juniors openly voiced their opinions concerning current 
campus problems dui : ng the Junior-Senior Assembly, October 4. In several discussions groups 
sach including two or more faculty members and up to 15 students, the' Honor System, closer 
student - faculty relations, problems pertineit to the student and the faculty, and departmental 
clubs, were the predominate issues. 

The VIEW brings to light the results and conclusions determined in these discussions. 
I. Honor System 

UCLA, Mr. O'Connor joins ' ing. Varsity track~hcld his 
the Mount faculty after posi- j lerest during both high school 

ard college. The wilderness 

1) Faculty should be more informed 
about the working of the Honor System 

2) More person to person contact on the 
part of those students who understand it as a 
way of life 

3) Should not be called a "system" 
H. Closer student-faculty relations 

1) Faculty should try to have lunch 
with students, occasionally 

2) Informal Coffee - Conversation groups 
every other Wednesday at 3:10 

3) A formal Student-Faculty Tea once a 
quarter or semester with hostesses 

4) More Junior-Senior, Freshmen-Sopho- 
more Assemblies 

III. Problems of students and faculty 

1) Lack of aggressiveness in going to 

faculty on part of students 

2) Over assigning by some faculty mem- 

3) Grade consciousness due to superficial 
treatment of courses with emphasis on roll 

all; homework collection, number of times of 
ecitation, etc. 

4 1 Lack of motivation on part of stu- 

5) Failure of upperclassmen to commun- 
icate information an 1 help to underclassmen 
IV. Departmental Clubs 

1) Have clubs evaluate themselves as to 
their necessity 

2) Departmental orientation to profes- 
sional opportunities during frosh and soph 



tiens in both junior 
ior high schools.

Candid Impressions 

When asked for his impres- 
sions of the college Mr. 
O'Connor noted a considerable 
difference between the intel- 
lectual capabilities of the col- 
lege and high school student. 
He finds the whole academic 
atmosphere "agreeable and 
not factory-like." 

When friends ask him what 
it's like being a male teacher 
among women he admits that 
"there's safety in numbers."

Five Seniors, Homemakers 
During Seven Week Lab 


Chatting with five girls can be fun, but when it's in and 
about Casa Margarita, it's an experience. 

Seven Week Lab 

The Home Management Lab, named in memory of Sister 
Marguerite, founder of the Home- Economic Department on 
this campus, each year helps- Home Ec. majors turn three 
years of study and theory into seven weeks of practice. For 
the first 7 week period, this year, Linda Bockhold, Roberta 
Hagerty, Liz McCready, Lorraine Morales and Jean Moynier 
take over the householJ, supervised by Sister Cecile Therese. 

With three years of background in home economics, each 
gjrl pays $130.00 "rent" for the seven week period. Each one 
is given back $75.00 to use for her share of the food, phone 
bill, gasoline needed for shopping trips, and any other house- 
hold expenses. 

Fulltime Homemakers 

While they live in, the girls assume the same responsi- 
bilities of a homemaker who also carries a full class schedule. 

Their duties are divided into five classes, cook, assistant 
cook, hostess, housekeeper and laundress. Each girl accepts 
these duties for two 5% day periods. 

Group living 

During the relatively short period that they live in Casa 
Margarita, the girls experience group living with its spontan- 
eity, the sharing of one another's backgrounds, enjoying their 
activities together, and all the friendliness and consideration 
thbl go along with this type of living. 

They learn that flexibility is important to a good home- 
maker as well as the "art" of making their own decisions. 

Anyone who has not yet seen Casa Margarita, feel free to 
in al any time and see the home management lab in

li\rs :ii tin- Foyer St.- Genevieve in 

Dear Mounties : 

When I arrived in Quebec, 
I took the limousine which 
takes passengers to the Cha- 
teau Fronten&c. The driver 
slopped at Betholet and the 
Grand A Use (Main St.) and 
let me off in a residential 
section. I "was hot, tired, messy, 
and very confused-. I didn't 
know what else to do. so I 
asked the first person I saw 
if he knew the Foyer's ad- 
dress. He did. 

It (the Foyer) is a very 
grey, somber looking building 
from the outside, but at this 
moment it was home, para- 

The first day I was so lone- 
i-oms and lost. If it wasn't for 
the fact that the Irish are oc- 
casionally stubborn. I think I 
would have gone home then. 
What bothered me most was 
the feeling of being an alien, 
a foreigner. 

Quebec is built on a hill. 
The Government buildings are 
at the top of the hill and 
Laval University is at the foot 
of the hill. We live at the top 
of the hill, beyond the gov't 
buildings. We wa! . under the 
Parliament building un our 
way to tiie University. 

The streets in Quebec are 
very narrow. There are very 
few stoplishts and the drivers 
honk their horns when they 
approach intersections. I've 
never heard so much honking! 
The streets are almost per- 
pendicular. Some of the build- 
ings have railings along the 
alls. I imagine we need them 
to keep from sliding when ii 

There are so many things to 
write, but I'm getting sleepy.

Speaker Affirms 
German Reliability 

On Wednesday, October 18, 
the Eusebians-IRC presented 
Dr. Carl Cristophe Schweitzer 
from West Germany who 
spoke on "Is the West Ger- 
man Federal Republic a 
trustworth democracy?" Hav- 
ing worked for several years 
in the West German equiva- 
lent of the United States In- 
formation Service, Dr. 
Schweitzer was well qualified 
to speak on his subject. 

Dr. Schweitzer contended 
ih;it Germany is on the way 
to democracy. He substantiat- 
ed this statement by the last 
general elections in West 
Germany, pointing out that 
the voting was seriously 
taken by large numbers of 
voters. In addition, he slated, 
al parties arc of no con- 
■ since there is no of- 
l Communist party nor a 
neo-Nazi party. Likewise, no 
important government posi- 

tions are held by persons 
with Nazi beliefs. 

Summarizing the aims and 
beliefs of the active West 
German political parties, he 
stated "the • days of extreme 
nationalism in Germany are 
over." He continued that the 
West should not be misled by 
the German economic revo- 
lution — Germany has, at the 
present time, no real hope of 
becoming a great power. 

In regard to the recent 
election, Dr. Schweitzer ex- 
pects no substantial change 
in policies. The current Ger- 
man attitude on the West 
Berlin situation is to wait and 
see and have confidence in 
the West. It is unnatural, said 
Dr. Schweitzer, for Germans 
to reject the idea of unity, 
yet all are agreed it must be 
wrought by peaceful means. 
Remarked Dr. Schweitzer, the 
German people "never speak 
about it, but always think 
about it."

Sports Week 

So you only see your Eng- 
lish teacher in the classroom? 
Well, things have changed. 

Sometime in the next few 
weeks, you may be facing her 
on the tennis courts. Or per- 
haps you'll be engaged in an 
intense chess game with that 
one teacher you just can't get 
to know. 

Never, you say? Well, put 
aside your chem notes for a 
minute, and lend an ear to 
this. . . .

teachers, this week is an in- 
novation at the Mount. 

Tennis, Swimming and vol- 
leyball are a few of the more 
active Sports offered. However, 
if you don't feel like jumping 
over the nel after a fast ten- 
nis set, you can always chal- 
lenge your theology teacher to 
a game of checkers. 

Tennis. Vnyone?

morning, but by 11 o'clock the scene had changed. Then ihe 
seemingly distant fire swept closer to the Mount campus. By 
noon the racing flames had jumped the San Diego Freeway 
and soon they reached Mount St. Mary's College. 

For a time it appeared that the fire would demolish the 
campus, but much of the college \v:is spared. The fire destroy- 
ed the convent and the Marian Hall of Fine Arts as well as 
damaging the Administration Building and the third floor of 
(he House of Studies. 

Besides the total ruin of the Marian Hall of Fine Arts, 
the files and the records of the music and the art departments 
were lost in the fire. Twelve paintings from the Comara Gal- 
lery, valued at five thousand dollars, ani thirty paintings 
belonging to the Westwood Art Association, worth four thou- 
sand dollars, went up in the blaze. The fire also took pro- 
jectors, thousands of color slides, paintings and art supplies 
from the art department. 

Damage was also heavy in the music department. .stereo

campus. Although tiie shrubs next to the chapl were bu 
the chapel wasn't damaged. The flames touched a small conn r 
of the chapel door, but they were prevented from entering by 
the efforts of a fireman, who was burned in the attempt. The 
paint on the doors of North and South Halls was blUtered by 
the heat of the flames. The fire reached the plants near the

Both residence halls weathered the- fire. The bowl also was 
ruined by the flames .The fence around the swimming pool 
burned as did part of the dress:ng rooms.

OrdeaS By Fire 

Mount St. Mary's College 
suffered its ordeal by fire 
this wee!;. In a more barbaric 
age such a test was consider- 
ed a valid instrument of jus- 
lice, used to determine legal 
gu'ut or innocence. This device, 
happily, is outmoded but fire 
still does lest the quality of 
human souls. 

We know, of course, that 
fire has no respect for persons 
or institutions. Harnessed to 
human service, it can be our 
faithful and useful ally; un- 
controlled, it consitutes a ter- 
ror-ridden threat. It is a mon- 
ster of wanton destructive- 
ness, irrational, capricious, un- 

Yet perversely, it may pro- 
vide the occasion for the birth 
or the illiMn'nation of great 
qualities of heart and char- 
acter. In the present instance, 
this proved to be the case. 
The greater part of the col- 
lege was saved through the 
heroic efforts of those who 
rose to heights of unselfish 

In the critical hour when 
water supplies were exhausted 
and all seemed lost, new re- 
sources rallied to the defense 
of the college. A generous 
neighbor rushed his own water 
supply to the scene, an entire 
freeway crew hurtled their 
tank trucks up the mountain 
road, and volunteers joined 
the firemen in their desperate 
fight against the holocaust. 

There are debts of gratitude 
which beggar the power of 
words to pay. Yet we venture 
here to voice the thanks of 
the Sisters at Mount St. Mary's 
to all who shared in this high 
hour of heroism for them. No 
thanks were asked, it is true, 
but the college and novitiate 
chapels are still standing as 
a monument to these men, 
and there the Sisters will re- 
member them through the 
months and years which lie 

This was an ordeal by fire, 
and out of it emerged also a 
lesson of complete dedication 
on the part of the college it- 
self. On Monday two buildings 

I were totally destroyed, a 
third serverly damaged. On 
Wednesday, classes resumed. 
In improvised facilities amid 

| the char and dust of a barren 
campus, with smoke still 

! curling over the distant hori- 
zon, the Sisters went back to 
their work. , 

It is the work to which they 
have given their lives, so im- 
portant and needful that it 
brooks no delay. It is the wrok 
which brought so many reli- 
gious communities, in pioneer 
days of toil and hardship, 
here to the rim of the West- 
ern sea. It is the work which 
has survived many previous 
trials, surmounted many pre- 
vtous obstacles, endured heart- 
■(hes and loneliness, poverty 
and pain. Fire or flood shall 
not impede it nor the hand of 
"ircumstancc or time. 

In their task of forming the 
character of young women in 
the pattern of the great wom- 
en of our race and in the image 
of her who was the most va- 
liant woman of them all, our 
teaching S'Sters employ the 
arts and skills of their profes- 
sion. But beyond all that, they 
nrovide the essential element 
of the example of their own 

And that is why, in their 
future lives, the students of 
Mount St. Mary's College must 
be distinguished for their for- 
titude, their sense of respon- 
sibility, and their devotion to 
duty. The remembrance of a 
calm and cheerful Sister among 
the dark ruins of a fire-swept 
hill will endure when other 
lessons fade. 

The heartfelt condolence-. 
| of our people are extended to 
the Sis(ers of St. Joseph as 
they take up the slow and 
painful (ask of rebuilding. 
Their loss has been a great 
one. I5ut their steady purpose 
Ikis not diminished, their 
courage has not failed, their 
catastrophe has not been 
empty. The work will go on, 
■lid we all have gained some- 
thing from it, e\en in this 
'■le-.iU hour.

Saroyan Sets Humanity on Stage 
In 'Cave Dwellers', Fall Production 

"AH the world's a stage, 
and all the men and women 
merely players, they have 
their exits and their en- 
trances," exclaimed Shake- 
speare. Ironically, the world 
that William Saroyan creates 
in the "Cave Dwellers" actual- 
ly does take place on a stage 
in an old abandoned theater 
in the East Side of New York. 
This stage serves as a refuge 

Doctor M. Doran 
Composes Music 
For Production 

Doctor Matt Doran, com- 
poser, and conductor, has com- 
posed, arranged, and conducted 
original music for the forth 
coming Mount St. Mary's Col- 
lege production of William Sa- 
royan's "The Cave Dwellers" 
which will be presented in the 
Little Theatre on three eve- 
nings, November 20, 21, andj 

Doctor Doran, a member of 
the Mount St. Mary's College 
music faculty, has composed 
and conducted background mu- 
sic for the Columbia Workshop 
for three years. At one time 
he was orchestral arranger for 
Walter Schumann of CBS. 

"The Cave Dwellers," origi- 
nally scheduled for the week- 
end of November 16, was post- 
poned due to the major fire 
disaster in the Brentwood 
area. Although the cast «^ 
called to rehearsal after the 
rubble had been cleared from 
the Little Theatre, the music 
for the production had not as 
yet been recorded. The total 
destruction of the music build- 
ing delayed the recording until 
musical instruments could be 

William Saroyan's unique 
drama employs the stage of 
an abandoned theatre on the 
lower East-side of New York 
for its setting. Dream, ballet, 
and tango sequences highlight 
the action, and Dr. Doran s 
music in the modern mode is 
keyed effectively to the time- 
lessness of the play. 

Musicians who «i" perform 
the original and provocative 
musical background are: clari- 
n( . lis t _ John Jones; Irench- 
h„rn— Charles Diamond; Ogoc 
—Gregory Donovetski; cellist 

Celine llurford; percussion 

— Elizabeth Fleming, 

to four homeless outcasts 
from an indifferent world. 

The King, an ex-clown, the 
Duke, an ex-boxer, the Queen, 
an ex-actress and the Shy Girl 
all live together in their own 
world and through each other 
find warmth and a reason for 

Undeniably the theme of the 
"Cave Dwellers" is love in its 
many facets as the essence of 
life. However there exists con- 
troversial opinions as to whe- 
ther the "Cave Dwellers - ' is a 
whimsical product of Saroyan's 
imagination or whether it is 
intended to convey a deep mes- 
sage to all. The play leaves 
the meaning to the audience's 
own individual interpretation. 

Major Roles 

Major female roles are 
double cast. Mary Jo Theis 
and Sheila Sausse (both jun- 
iors) characterize the Shy 
Girl, while Margaret Conley 
(junior) and Carmen Tejada 
(senior) portray the Queen. 
Joining the cast with their 
roles as Duke, King, and 
Father, are Marc Bradley, 
Francis Dionne and Frank 
Killmond, respectively. 

Minor Characters 

Donna Grove (frosh) takes 
up her role as the Mother, 
while M a n u e 1 1 a Cuajunco 
(frosh) plays the young 
Queen, and Stephanie Simon 
(frosh' portrays a woman with 
a dog. 

Other male roles in the 
"Cave Dwellers" include Tane 
Koblick playing three parts, 
the silent boy, a young man 
and a young opponent, Ronald

Six Male Actors Join 
j'all Masquer Production 

A vital part of the "Cave Dwellers" happens to be its male 
characters. Joining the cast in the fall production, we find 
six male actors, Francis Dionne, Marc Bradley, Frank Kill- 
mond Ronald Collier, Tane Koblick, Michael Ford, and Robert 


Francis Dionne (King) claims a four year background in 
amateur theater work playing in San Francisco and Los 
Angeles. Mr. Dionne is especially interested in Catholic Theater 
groups and enjoys working in Mount plays, especially. In fact 
he has appeared in "Hotel Universe" and "Second Threshold." 

"Through acting I find a sense of excelling and accom- 
plishment, something I don't find in any other field," Mr. 
Dionne declared, explaining that acting is only a sideline. 


Marc Bradley (Duke) pays the Mount a return visit after 
his performance in last year's production "Ask Any Girl." Mr. 
Bradley claims performance in T.V., nightclubs and movie 
work as well as "playing the Palace" in New York. When 
asked the basic theme of the "Cave Dwellers" Mr. Bradley 
returned "Love is it." 


Playing the role of the Father in the production. Frank 
Killmond comes to the Mount with a past in T.V. and motion 
picture work, his most recent a part in "The Honeymoon 
Machine." Mr. Killmond is a graduate of Villanova and is now 
working toward his Masters in acting at LA. State College. 


Ronald Collier (working crew boss) depicts "Cave Dwel- 
lers" as a "dramatist's portrait of love." Mr. Collier has done 
theatre work in San Francisco as well as L.A. He is recently 
contracted to write for Jeb Productions and will appear in a 
feature role in their coming production, "The Horn." 


Last seen here at the Mount in "Madame Pepita" is Tane 
Koblick (The Silent Boy). His previous background includes 
attendance at Woodbury Business College and work with the 
Agnes Moorehead Theatre Workshop. 


Michael C Ford (Jamie), playwright and composer, is cur- 
rently working on his Concerto for Bongos, Flute, and Brass. 
As Mr. Ford himself expresses, his major occupation during 
the past year was "Underground and Studying." 

Appearing on stage for the first time as our lovable bear 
is Robert Knourek (Gorky) who is a local impresario and 
natural mimic.

And when our quest for cul- 
tural enrichment leads us be- 
yond the Mount, the most IN 
way to explore the outside 
world is evacuation. 

In conclusion, however, I 
would like to caution any pre- 
■us consideration of the 
foregoing material as infallibly 
precise. Unfortunately the au- 
thor was forced to rely on a 
vicarious sampling of behavior, 
because she herself is, alas, 

Today's college men are 
conceited, immature, lazy, in- 
considerate, unsophisticated, 
rude self-styled Lotharios 
whose promises are as empty 
as those uttered by Khrush- 

At least that's what the 
girls at Marymount College in 
Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., 
had to say about them in a 
poll which they conducted re- 
cently on their campus on the 
cliffs overlooking the ocean. 

The poll was the project of 
Vfarymount social chairman 
Frances Bendi of New York 
City, and was triggered by a 
recent rash of articles in 
which the college men criti- 
cized the girls in everything 
from thc vvaj they applied 
their toenail polish to their 

"We've had enough of this 
sniping," they said. "They ex- 
pect us 1o be quiet little mice 
with no opinions of our own, 
while they themselves are ap- 
pallingly immature." 

In the all-important date 
department, they commented, 
"Why do so many of them 
think they're doing us a big 
favor when they ask us out, 
siallj when they suggest 
a 'Dutch Treat'."' 

"Why do they expect us to 
accept a date at the moment, 
and then after they've seen us 
several times, take it for 
granted we're going steady?" 
"Why don't they lake danc- 
ing lessons? One in a hundred 
knows his way around the 

"Why does the fraternity 
man with a foreign speedster 
:""l a hie, allowance think he 
is a catch of the season? \\ r

In the academic field, the 
Marymount girls have little 

patience with the men who 
are not faking full advantage 
of their educational opportu- 
nities, and whose ideals of 
music and art are the newest 
.iazz combo or the latest pin up 
photo of Brigitte Bardot. 

The giils also take them to 
task for their clothes: "Why- 
do they relish in being so 
sloppy? They have no style 
sense whatever, and could take 
lessons in proper apparel from 
their fathers. Yet they always 
expect us to look like fashion 

In personal traits, quite a 
lew observed, "They lack am- 
bition and are alwajs looking 
I or the easy way out. They 
are afraid to be individuals 
and seek the security of the 
pack. They use the interna- 

tional situation as an excuse 
lor being lazy." 

Most of the girls agreed on 
how to handle them: "Treat 
them like spoiled little boys. 
That's exactly what they are."

Tired of studying? Don't hesitate, change your major now 
to activities. They require absolutely no more than twice the 
time taken up by classes. As a sampling of what you may 
enjoy between now and December 5, we offer the following: 

November 17, Loyolans sponsor a Plymouth Rocker. You 
may get in free if you came on the Mayflower. The 15, 17, 18, 
and 19 of November give music lovers a chance to see Fidelio, 
Turandot, Rigoletto, and Madama Butterfly, in that order, at 
the Shrine Auditorium. On campus, concerts arc scheduled for 
November 20 and December 11, and a gala Christmas program 
for December 13. 

As a special group major, we offer Loyola's Homecoming 
Activities: November 18, the Queen's Mixer, a whole week of 
float building from 23-28, the Princess Contest and Princess 
voting on the 27 and 28 respectively, "Roaring Twenties" 
Parade on the 29, "Roaring Twenties" Sock Hop on the 30, 
and the grand finale of game and dance on Dec. 1. Drama 
enthusiastists will be able to see the Mount's fall play. Cave 
Dwellers, on the 20, 21 and 22 of November, and on December 
4 The Miracle Worker opens at the Biltmore. Southern Cal is 
planning a performance of J. B. for which we unfortunately 
do not have the opening date. 

If you have changed your major from history and would 
like to reminisce come to the Eusebian's night meeting, 
December 6, and go all out for Bill of Rights Week December 

Those already in sororities will no thaye to make a radical 
change . . . simply drop all classes. They will then have ade- 
quate time to devote to the Gamma Mother-Daughter Break- 
fast November 19, the TAZ Safari Parly December 2, the 
Kappa date party December 7, and Kappa's Christmas dinner 
December 10. 

Former sociology majors can hear a panel discussion on 
"Working Wives and Mothers" during SWES-sponsored Fam- 
ily Day, November 22. Dropping classes will also permit early 
Christmas shopping at the Lambda Omichron Chi cookie sale 
December 11 and the Parnassian book sale November 27 - Dec- 
ember 1. On November 21 Seniors may take an elective in the 
form of a night out. Sports fans with an urge to travel can 
watch Loyola play basketball in San Diego on December 5, 
while tfiose without said urge may mingle with Loyolans at a 
mixer December 7, sponsored by the University's RSA. Nurses 
can forget their cares at the White Caps Christmas Party on 
December 10. December 3, the Mount will be invaded by seniors 
from outlying high schools, and December 8 is a holiday — 
whatever that means. Boarders with time on their hands may 
participate in those activities listed in the Mountain Ear, a 
vigilantly factual publication falsely accused of yellow journa- 
lism by a rival editor who shall remain nameless.

Parnassians Prep 
For Book Sale 

Stationers Corp. and the

the must difficult person on 
any Christmas list. With this 
thought in mind, the Parnas- ' 
sians «i|| open their seventh 
annual book sale Nov. 27 in 
the library. 

The carefully selected books 
will cover many fields of inter- ' 
est including novels, English 
criticism, religion, and chil-j 
dren's books. 

Awareness of good books is 
the primary interest of the 

Parnassians. A book sale in the 
library atmosphere encourages 
ownership of these good books 
rather than just wistful brows- 

Feel free to browse, how- 
ever, for surprises are in store. 
Perhaps some members of the 
faculty will be standing in 
front of the books they wrote. 

The book sale is one of two 
major Parnassian projects. The 
other is the Twelfth Night 
Party held on January 5.

Social Reform Needed, 
Says Indian Doctor 

In a lecture given on November 3 sponsored by the Socio- 
logy Department, Dr. Suresh Srivastua of U.C.L.A. compared 
child-rearing practices in the United States with those in 

Dr. Srivastua pointed out to the students that the deep 
spirituality of Indian culture would stave off the encroach- 
ments of Communism. The two hours of daily prayer, on an 
average, that each family of India practices was compared with 
the "spiritual materialism" of American religion, exemplified 
by air-conditioned churches; Dr. Srivastua humorously sug- 
gested that perhaps bars will be a necessary part of a church 
in the future. 

Social reform is much more badly needed than economic 
reform, according to l»r. Srivastua. "To hold that (he econoiuh 
i- the kej to the total problem of India is to lie :is determin- 
istic :is Han in his economic determinism," he said. "Compul- 
sorj education laws are now iii effect and are being strictly 
enforced," h<> pointed out. This, he feels, will be a meai 
effe< ii progress. 

jan uiego 

On Dec. 1 and 2, the Chem- 
istry majors, accompanied by 
Dr. Hallie Bundy and Sister 
Cecilia Louise, will attend the 
Chemistry Society regional 
meeting in San Diego. 

The highlight of the trip will 
be a symposium on "The Fu- 
ture of Chemistry ", featuring 
Dr. Linus Pauling and Dr. Har- 
old XIrey, with other promi 
nent scientists. The .Mount 
group will also attend sessions 
in the fields of organic, inor- 
ganic, analytical, and physical 

"The Art of Creative Liv- 
ing" was the central theme for 
discussions at the Southern 
California College Clubs Work- 
shop of the American Home 
Economics Association. The 
workshop, held Oct. 28, took 
place at Los Angeles State 

Miss Jean Copeland of Pep- 
perdine College gave the open- 
ing address" to the workshop 
members. Following Miss 
Copeland, there were five 
guest speakers who spoke on 
one phase of the art of crea- 
tive living. 

Representing the Mount fac- 
ulty at the meeting was Sister 
Laurentia, who led a discus- 
sion on the "Art of Enjoying 
T.iterature". As a springboard 
lor conversation, Sister stated 
that "literature is the best of 
all arts for sharing." This led 
into a vigorous discussion, out 
of which came the thought, 
that art gives us a chance to 
stop and see what the artist 
has to say. 

The role of the Mount in 
this workshop was to secure 
an evaluation of the meeting 
from the participants for fu- 
ture discussion. The apparent 
success of the workshop and 

the excellent reception of Sis- 
ter Laurentia were two grati- 
fying facts to the Mount 
Lambda Omicron Chi members 
who attended the workshop. 

As a follow-up to the workr 
shop, the Nov. 11 General 
Board meeting of the AHEA at 
the Mount was a combination 
evaluation and leadership 
workshop. Since the meeting 
was held here, Mount L.O.C. 
members hosted representa- 
tives from twenty Home Eco- 
nomics clubs in Southern Cali- 

Aids Sisters 

"The Sodality has cancelled 
its future plans in order to 
consolidate its efforts with 
those of the Student Council 
to raise money to help the 
sisters," said Margaret King, 
Sodality Prefect. 

Two of the Sodality plans 
which the Council may adopt 
as student body activities are 
a magazine drive and a 
Christmas card sale. 

Mount L.O.C. 

Elected last spring as State 
Secretary of Lambda Omicron 
Chi, Camille Abdelnour is a 
sophomore at the Mount Ac- 
tive in L. O. C. at the Mount, 
Camille was able to achieve 
this state honor though still 
an underclassman. 

Last year the Mount was 
represented on the State 
Board by Liz McCready. 
as Treasurer; and in two 
years, because of this partici- 
pation, the Mount will be 
j eligible to have a candidate up 
for presidency of the Board.

Mount Announces 
Two Year Plan 

Sister Rebecca, president of Mount St. Mary's College, has 
announced that the college will initiate a new two year pro- 
gram for higher education at the Downtown Campus. Sister 
Rebecca and Dr. Malcolm MacLean, educational consultant to 
the college, revealed the plans on December 4 at a news con- 
ference held in the marble Pompeian Room of the Downtown 

Individual Emphasis 

This two year course of study, which will begin in Sep- 
tember, 1962, will emphasize individual needs and talents. 
Admission to the college will be based on personal interview. 
A full time psychologist will test each applicant and guide 
her study. 

College officials believe "evidence from a number of 
sources indicates clearly that poor secondary school records, 
a low College Entrance Examination Board score, or failure 
to enroll in college preparatory courses are not necessarily 
ultimate indicators of what individual students will do when 
confronted with college level work, when such college work 
includes a good communications program with strong guidance 
and counseling programs." 

Dr. MacLean pointed out that it is necessary to make 
both educators and students aware that there is a great 
variety of talents to be found in each individual. "We aim 
to help the student discover and develop them," he said. 

"In admitting students who 
have not been accepted by 
other colleges," Dr. MacLean 
continued, "it is necessary to 
help them face the realities 
of their limitations but, at 
the same time, give them op- 
portunities to prove them- 

This interest in the individu- 
al will enable the college to 
provide a flexible program of 
studies including specialized 
courses in homemaking, art 
and music. 

Sister Rebecca stated, "Our 
aim is to educate the student 
for her role both as parent 
and citizen in a troubled world 
through proper use of her in- 
dividual gifts in particular 

Two Curriculum Plans 

The student may choose ei- 
ther of two curriculum plans. 
The first program will consist 
in the regular lower division 
college course. After two years 
the student may transfer to 
a four year college, qualified 
to begin upper division work. 

The second or term!naT pro- 
gram will prepare the student 
for home and family living, 
secretarial and business occu- 
pations, nursing, art, music 
and other specialized areas of 

At the completion of the 
two year course an Associate 
of Arts degree or a special- 
ized certificate will be given. 
Firsts in Catholic Education 

Mount St. Mary's College 
will become the first Cntholie 
college on the West Coast to 
grant an Associate of Arts 
degree. Experimental aspects 
of the program make the 
Mount the first Catholic col- 
lege in the United States to 
offer this dimension in higher 
education for women. 

A faculty committee is con- 
sidering the elimination of the 
unit system. Competency, in- 
stead of units, would deter- 
mine the course requirement. 

Classes will be held at the 
Mount St. Mary's College

New Program 

Mount Remains *Up-to-Date' 

With very few exceptions, it 
may be said of institutions of 
higher learning that they pride 
ihemselves on being "up - to - 
date." But more often than not, 
this "up-to-date-ness" consists in 
having the best equipment and 
Ihe most modern physical plant, 
and very little otherwise. While 
neither being well-equipped nor 
being well-housed is insignifi- 
cant, it is doubtful that either 
area of "up-to-date-ness" can 
claim to be the most important 
in education. 

Rather, a thorough education 
by competent instructors, an 

education in keeping with the 
student's potentialities, skills, 
and needs, would seem to be 
the most important area of edu- 
cation. And it cannot be denied 
that the aim adopted by the 
Sisters of St. Joseph in their si* 
collegiate programs is anything 
other than a thorough, Catholic 

A most convincing proof of 
this aim is the recent announce- 
ment of a program unique in the 
annals of western Catholic edu- 
cation, the program of studies 
leading to an Associate of Arts 
degree. It is certainly significant 
that the announcement follows 

by less than a month the almost 
ruinous fire. The initiation of 
such a program amply demon- 
strates the foresight and cour- 
age of the college administra- 
tion. There is certainly no more 
admirable and necessary work 
to be done than the education 
of Catholic women for the intel- 
lectual, social an ] spiriHtal life 
they must lead in this troubed 
world. Certainly the new pro- 
gram will enable the work to be 
even more successful. 

The Mount remains "up-to- 
date" in the most important' 
way. — P.W. 

French Have . . . 

More Than A Word 

The Greeks might have a word for it, but the 
French have more than a word. They mark the roads with 
typical French subtlety and few words. 

"Six morts, 16 octobre, 1959," the sign reads. It looks 
like a metal tombstone, and it is. It's found by the side of 
the road at each place an accident has occurred. 

Three or four graveyard crosses in a row tell a grim 
story: this is a dangerous spot — be careful. A glance at 
them and the driver concentrates on his main interest in 
life: living. 

Perhaps those marked crosses should be put on American 

But maybe not. The way things have been, there wouldn't 
be enough room for them all. 


On the Road 

Do You Want Dictatorship 7 . 

According to our set-up of 
student government, the stu- 
dent assembly is the legisla- 
tive body for the associated 
students of Mount St. Mary's 
College. Eut practically, is it 
really effective? 

To be effective, it seems the 
assembly should be a body that 
lesolves student problems and 
contributes to the students' ed- 
ucation in the democratic 
process. Does the student as- 
sembly accomplish either of 
these things? 

If the majority of stu- 
dents feel that it doesn't, 
our constitution should be 
changed. Student government 
could be put completely into 
the hands of that small effi- 
cient group, the studem. i 
• il This would save the ar- 
dent body 50 minutes every 
five weeks, and save the stu- 
dent council hours spent every 
week giving students a chance 
to participate in their own 
self-government. The. 
government for most students 
would become the one tradi- 
tional act of electing new of- 
ficers to do the work for the 
I year. Within a few years 
a dictatorship should be run- 
ning smoothly over an auto- 
maton student body. 

But there seems to be b 20 

■ "' minority of students 

who would not give up theii 

right to exer.i&e self govern- 
ment. Last Monday at the 
student body their hands were 
tied by the absence of 80 per 
cent of the students. Action 
of two nuclear testing resolu- 
tions had to be postponed un- 
til a quorum would be present. 
If a quorum is not present at 
the February 12 student body 
meeting, a constitutional re- 
vision will probably be pro- 
posed by the students present 
calling for a student body vote 
to delete the necessity of a 

If the apathetic 80 per- 
cent again refuse to vote, 
they will in effect be giving 
any small interested minority 
the right to legislate for all 
the students of Mount St. 
Mary's. By this system, stu- 
dent government will devolve 
into the hands of those who 
want to use it. The rest of the 
students are relinquishing 
their rights by non-participa- 
tion and should have no com- 
plaints if the ruling minority 
doesn't happen to agree with 
the apathetic majority. 

One interesting aspect of a 
student government deterior- 
ating into either a dictatorship 
by student council or govern- 
ment by the will of the mi- 
nority is the excellent prepara- 
tion it will give the majority 
of students for life under the 
communist system.

The Administrative Board 
of the College has voted on 
certain regulations regard'ng 
campus parking. Beginning 
.January 3, 1962, fines will be 
imposed ior the breaking of 
parking regulations. The fines 
will be as follows: 

$1.00 for not possessing a 
tlecal on the car; 

£2.00 for parking the car in 
an unassigned place; 

$3.00 for locking the ear if 
it is in a position to block 

Cars will be checked and, if 
liable for a fine, a card will 
be left stating the offense. A 
duplicate card will be sent to 
the treasurer's office. All 
fines must be paid at the 
-ursr's office within three 
d.?vs after the card is given.

All So Easy 

It was all so easy. Turn the ignition key, release the 
brake, and put the car into drive. So easy. That was all I 
needed to get behind the wheel and join the million other 
drivers out on the road. 

No books to study; no courses to pass. Get behind the 
wheel and go. So I went. 

No experience; no help; no nothing. Just drive. I'm one 
of the group now. One of those tense people who slide up to 
a stoplight and sit there ready to take off at the first flick 
of a green light. So much fun to speed off leaving the other 
cars standing still at the light. 

Not many rules to learn. Stop for the red lights; go for 
the green. Yellow lights are in the middle, they dcui't matter. 

Honk when the jerk in front of you moves too slowly. 
Or give him a few flashes with the brights. Don't follow the 
front car too closely. Easy rules. Easy game. 

Watch the road. And watch for pedestrians. Pesky kids. 
Never know when to move out of the way. Just honk and 
they'll move fast enough. Stupid mutts. They're easy to 
scare too. Move up behind them and honk awhile. Watch 
them jump. VERY easy game. 

Don't let anyone back on the street until you've gone 
by. Go fast. No one will cross then. Some kids always try 
it. Stupid thing to do. Just to pick up a rubber football No1 
worth slowing down for. The kid'll be across the street by 
the time I reach him. Why stop now? 

Just a soft thud. Then the air seeping out of a foot- 
ball. That's all. 

So easy.

Theology Prof- Relates 
Globe-Trotting Adventures 

The Mount's globe-trotter professor of theology, Father M. 
Camilleri, claims a varied past. Though Malta was his first 
home he studied languages and theology in France and Italy, 
later travelling to England, Spain, India, Egypt, Ceylon ,-,*d 
Australia. Using this background he has taught Italian, 
French, philosophy and theol 


Army Chaplain 

During the war Father 
served as chaplain in the Brit- 


ish Army. His position as sec- 
retary to the Emigrants Com- 
mission of the Malta Catholic 
Action involved considerable 
welfare work. It was a similar 
position as member of the 
Committee of Emigrants that 
brought Father to America. 
When he failed to find ade- 
quate provisions in New York 
he readily volunteered to come 
to California. 

Opinions of America 

Living in the U.S. six months 
has given Father enough time 
to form some opinions. He 
thinks highly of America" 
and sees "great possibilities in 
every field'. Specifically, he 
finds Mount students "eager 
to learn and ready to listen 
to the experiences of others". 

Among Father's less schol- 
astic interests are photogra- 
phy and language study. His 
extensive slide and film collec- 
tion are evidences.

Do you know the sensation 
of flying a plane yourself, of 
being responsible for the ship's 
operation and for the lives of 
companions within ? 

Last June I accepted the 
challenge to fly an airplane 
and have since realized how it 
has opened an overwhelming 
world to me. My previous ex- 
perience shows a history of 
six years riding as a passen^er 
with my family and relatives. 
Frightening Experience 

Braverly I entered the 
cockpit to find a maze of 
switches, gadgets and numeri- 
cal figures strewn upon the 
instrument panel. I instantly 
began to analyze the names 
ascribed to various parts of 
my Cessna 150 trainer and to 
review their functions. 

Having given the plane a 
"line check," an examination 
for any defects prior to take- 
off, I was ready to move.

not be expresesd in words one

Jeannie Fashions Jewels 

By Barbara Sartori 

"A hobby is a means of providing oneself with a new 
adventure, both challenging and interesting." This opinion of 
Jeannie McDonough, Mount sophomore, is the result of per- 
sonal experience which began during her freshman year wher 
Jeannie's counselor mistakenly scheduled her in a jewelry 
class instead of a logic class. As a result, Jeannie became 
interested in this accidental course and decided to have 
jewelry-making as her hobby. 

Throughout the past year and a half of extensive craft 
work, Mr. Cressy has been one of the major influences in 
Jeannie's career. As Jeannie says, "He is the very best teacher 
I could ever hope to have. Encouragement and help are 
unconscious factors in his teaching technique." 

Already Jeannie has fashioned various types of jewelry. 
Rings are her favorite, although she can boast of having made 
a numerous number of gifts. However, three- rings which she 
was in the process of setting as Christmas presents were 
destroyed in the fire only weeks ago when the Marian Hall 
of Fine Arts Building burned.

Parnassians To Hold Party 

Parnassians will hold their annual Twelfth Night Party January 
5, in the Lecture Hall from 3 - 5 p.m. 

The event promises to be an interesting one, for the club

According to Jonnie Mobley, 
Parnassian's president: "In 
medieval times, "Twelfth 
Night" revels were held in 
England and an invariable cus- 
tom of the event was to serve 
cake containing a pea and a 
bean. The gentlemen who 
found the bean was proclaimed 
king of the revels and the lady 
who found the pea was 

The Parnassians will carry 
out this theme by providing a 
ring and a button for the king 
and queen of revels, and in- 
stead of cake, the objects may 
be found in the cookies served. 

Masters of revels will be

Students, Faculty, Laymen 
Join Christian Life Institute 

Now in its first year as a Mount organization, the Christian 
Life Institute. meets monthly for group discussions on the Mount 
campus. The Institute, organized by Sister Rose Cecilia and spon- 
sored by the Theology Department, is an innovation at the Mount 
in that its membership consists of students, faculty, and laymen. 

The purpose of the organi- 
zation is to apply the princi- 
ples o f formal theology to 
practical experience, and to- 
wards such an end the month- 
ly discussions are held. 

Though the membership of 
35 is now closed, applications 
for next year's membership 
may be made at the end of 
the year. The Institute is a 
discussion organization only, 
and as such, does not collect 
dues or sponsor campus activ- 
ities as the other clubs do. 

Mr. Grabiel, chairman of the 
discussion panel, conducts the 
meetings, the next of which 
is December 13 from 7-10 p.m.

Donations Aid Library 
In Replacing Lost Books 

The Mount library recently 
received a gift of almost two 
hundred books from the Stan- 
ford University Libraries to 
aid in the replacement of 
books lost in the fire The 
books in the Thomas More 
Seminar and the Marian Hall 
were destroyed. 

During December Sister 
Catherine Anita, Mount li- 
brarian, Sister Mary Patricia 
and Sister Rose Catherine 
went to Stanford to select the 
books. They were aided in 
their search by Raynard Coe 
Swank, Director of Stanford 
University Libraries, and Char- 
les R. Gorham, head librarian 
of the gift department. They 
looked through many books 
which were duplicates of those 
in the Stanford University Li- 
braries or were not of use to 
the libraries. The search re- 
sulted in the collection of al- 
most two hundred books. 

The collection consists main- 
ly in English books. There are 
also a number of music books, 
which will help greatly in re- 
placing the books destroyed in 
the music building. Some his- 
tory books were found also. 
More Donations 

Sixty art books were do- 
nated by Mrs. Abbey to the 
library this month. Mrs. Abbey 
is a former art history teacher 
at U.C.L.A.

College: A Process of Growth 

The end of a semester is a 
time of endings and begin- 
nings. For some, it means the 
ending of a college career; for 
others, it means only the be- 
ginning. Each new semester 
sees the start of new begin- 
nings, new learnings, new eval- 
uations. It is a time, too, for 
a summing-up and a drawing- 
together of the old experiences. 

Looked at in its totality, the 
college experience .s more than 
books and instructors, term pa- 
pers aril book reports. It is a 
time of growth — j n .,n direc- 
tions. K is an opportunity 
which will be presented only 
once, only now. It is a concen- 
tration on self, a revelation of 
personality as seen through 
learning, through friends, 
through those wiser and those 

not so wise. It is a time to 
look at oneself in perspective, 
to realize oneself as an indi- 

Books and grades alone do 
not constitute a college educa- 
tion, for, alone, these aids 
mean nothing. It is only 
through utilization of this 
knowledge that the realization 
of the value of learning is 
seen. And it is only through 
such utilization that the col- 
lege experience has any real 

Great things have happened 
to our college in the past se- 
mester; small disasters, as 
well as a great one, were turn- 
ed into victories because the 
students, administrators, and 
instructors of this institution 

recognized these events for 
what they were and acted to- 
gether in wisdom gained from 
knowledge to remedy these 
situations. Yet this, too, is 
only a beginning. 

Our college education has a 
greater function than that of 
helping us become learned 
graduates and loyal alumnae, 
lis great purpose is to make 
us educated women, in all the 
best meanings of the term, in 
a world where such women are 
My needed. Now. at the 
en I of one semester and the 
beginning of another, ii is time 
to evaluate ourselves, to see 
how far we have come along 
this road to mature woman-

For These, A Thank You' 

If the concert given by Johana Harris can be termed 
successful in any way, it is chiefly because of the herculean 
efforts of those persons involved in its presentation. For more 
than two weeks during the Christmas break, faculty, students, and 
friends worked upon the event. 


Without Ihe artistic talents of Mrs. Harris, the concert 
itself never would have been a realily. Because of her generosity 
with her time and talent, the concert was both « reality and 
or artistic success.

end the perseverance of her siaff, the concert would have been intelligence or both. To know

concert, the concert production involved many man hours. 

Although some tickets had been sold prior to the vacation 
period, the majority of ticket sales were made during the fin*' 
. . before the concert. Handling these ticket sales were Sister 
Margaret Marie, Sister Mary and Sister Cecilia Louise along 
with students Diane Frassetti, Sally Sands, Mary Lcj Revillard, 
and Callie Newman . 

As we grow older we begin 
to discern serious shortcom- 
ings in the persons and insti- 
tutions which in our earlier 
years we had innocently as- 
sumed to be blameless. Par- 
ents, teachers, pastors, and 
whatever other idols there be, j 
are found to have feet of clay.

blame. It would be dishonest 
to deny that dogmatism, for- 
malism and oppressiveness are 
never quite absent in the exer- 
cise of her mission. We find 
that there is a human element 
in the Church. 

Another major part of the concert planning was the publi- 
cation of the program for the evening. Sister Mary handled the 
layout work for the program. Faculty members Sister Miriam 
Jcseph, Mr. Walter Arlen, Dr. Pattee Evenson and Mr. G. Branan 
Ward together with students Sally Sands and Mary Lou Revillard 
spent numerous exasperating hours on the telephone procuring 
patrons for the publication. 

Publicity for the event was handled by Sister Miriam Joseph 
end Sally Sands. They were aided in their work by Diane Frassetti, 
Joan Kays, Mary Glasser, and Joanne Dalessanro who handled 
the mailing. 

Preparations for the concert reception were made by Sister 
St. George and Mr. and Mrs. J. Dalessandro. 

Immediately prior to the concert, the TAZ, Gamma and 
Kappa sororities and Sigma Alpha lota music fraternity served 

hers. Delores Stevens of the music faculty and Mary Lee 
Polchow, graduate music student, served as official hostesses 
for the concert. Mrs. John Farrow acted as official spokesman 
for the co-'lege. 

Without the efforts of all involved, both singly and collect- 
ively, the concert could have succeeded neither financially nor 
artistically. Each has done his or her part to make the concert 
a realized whole. Certainly each deserves the thanks of the 
college. PW 

like God, we are holier. 
In the Church 

Growing up in the Church is 

a stage in the process of 

growth. Most of us seem to ar- a case in point The threefold 

rive at that stage without un- , mission of the Church, given 

due delay. Perhaps it flatters to the apostles, is to teach re- 

our ego or palliates our guilt j ''S' " 3 truth, to administer 

to find that even the gods »re!^ red r ; tes and to 6 0Vern the

quick to discover the fact. 

Less easy is it to come to 
the next stage of growth in 
which we learn to accept the 
shortcomings of persons and 
institutions with composure so 
as to continue in undiminished 
loyalty to them. Certainly, the 
first impulse of youth is to 
raise the banner of revolt, and 
to cry out with indignant 
righteousness against hypo- 
crisy in high places. Only later 
when we have found our own 

Growth of a Catholic 

To know evil in the Church 
is, sadly enough, a necessary 
stage in the growth of a Cath- 
olic. Most of us seem to arrive 
at that stage without undue 
delay. Less easy is it for ua 
to reach that further stage 
where we accept the human 
element in the Church with 
composure so as to continue 
in undiminished loyalty to it. 
Yet until we reach that stage 
of growth we are less likely 
to discern the riches which lie 
beneath the poor exterior. But 
this we must do. For how shall 
we be able to faee the Bride- 
groom if we have nol loved His

Dr. Andreani Tells Past 
Vienna to California 

Students are students the world over, 
whether they learn in Vienna, Paris, or Cali- 
fornia — "they're all young, they're all the 
same," states the newest member of the 
Mount's Language Department, Dr. Kitty 
Andreani. Dr. Andreani, who is currently 
teaching German and Italian courses, has 
traveled throughout Europe and has taught 
for several years in the Italian equivalents 
of our Junior Colleges. 

Globetrotting Teacher 

Born in Vienna, Austria, Dr. Andreani is 
now an Italian citizen. She received her 
doctorate in modern languages (particularly 
German and Italian) from the University of 
Venice and has taught in both European and 
American schools. Coming to the United 
States in 1956, she taught 
German in the lab school of 
the University of Chicago for 
four years before coming to 
the Mount. "I haven't traveled 
much in the United States;" 
she admitted. "however, I 
would say that California is 
my favorite spot — mainly be- 
cause of the wonderful cli- 

Meets the Mount 

Dr. Andreani first came to 
the Mount at the urging of her 
son who had done some work 
in music here. "My first im- 
pression was that it is so love- 
ly here and now I have found 
that the girls and sisters are 
just as nice." There is quite a 
bit of work to be done in the 
field of German, she believes, 
especially in the introduction 
to the language. "European 
students have better gramma- 
tical backgrounds in their own 
languages — mainly because 
European grammar is stricter 
and simply must be learned. It 
is easier for them to learn 
other languages than for 
American youngsters, who 
have not felt the need to 
"learn" a language so much." 
Travels 'n' Tours 

In the near future, Dr. An- 
dreani would like to conduct 
European tours for Mount 
students. She and her group 
would tour all of Europe in the 
summer and would spend their 
final three weeks at the Uni- 
versity of Salzburg, near Vien- 
na. "Vienna is a place all young 
people should go. It is in the 
middle of Europe, rich in cul- 
tural and historical back- 
ground, and is traditionally in- 
ternational-minded. This tour 
will be a chance for those who 
are interested in Europe and 
travel to enrich themselves 
culturally and intellectually. . . 
it's a big job now, but it cer- 
tainly will be rewarding."

Mount Offers Master Degrees 
In Education, History, Music 

An inconspicuous but buzz-

under the direction of Sister 
M. Germaine, Graduate Dean. 
"It is important for under- 
graduates to realize that grad- 
uate students do exist on 
campus and are a definite as- 
set to the Mount." Sister Ger- 
maine commented. 

The Mount offers Master's 

degree programs in Education. 
History Music leading to 
degrees of Master of Arts. 
Master ot Science in Educa- 
tion and Master of Music. 

Special : zation programs are 
offered in each field :

Carolyn Dunlay and Mary 
Kay Norton are presently pre-

exams as Mount students. The 
two senior history majors will 
graduate at the end of Janu- 
ary, having accomplished their 
undergraduate work in three 
and a half years.

This issue's column is de- 
dicated to those who are not 
engaged, pinned, or otherwise 
visibly attached. Ah, the ec- 
static joy of going to mixers , 
to look, the thrill of seeins: the 
town with the girls, etc. That's 
not a grimace you see on the 
face of the unattached girl as, 
she examines the diamond — 
that's a smirk. Just think of 
all the boring occasions the un- 
attached girl avoids: 

1. she doesn't have to sit 
through shower after shower 
watching with horror as the 
same chartreuse and pink 
towel set keeps recurring; 

2. she doesn't have to ex- 
plain 5089 times a day: 

a. when she u»t it 

b. how long she's known 

c. where she met him, 

d. what his name is. 
and to the more in- 

e. where he goes to 

f. what his major is, and 

g. how tall he is; 
2. she doesn't have to re- 
hearse for days what to say 
and what to wear (the simple 
black sheath? the royal blue 

white or black gloves?) 
when she meets his parents. 

For the unattached girl, 
then, we present the following 
list of instant activities. From 
the likewise limited supply of 
unattached men, she may 
choose one to escort her to the 

1 Junior Jamboree, to be held 
January 19 at the Aragon 
Ballroom. Theme will be west- 
ern; couples- arriving by stage- 
coach will get in free and a 
gala Indian massacre has been 
planned for entertainment. On 
the 26th Loyola celebrates the 
cessation of finals with their 
Post Mortem, and a sensa- 
tional mid-semester break be- 
gins at the Mount on January 
25th and continues through 

the 31st. 

For the unattached girl with 
athletic interests, Loyola plays 
San Diego State on the 30th, 
and she may travel to Berke- 
ley to watch Loyola take on 
the Cal-Berkeley Conservatives 
on Feb. 2nd. On the 10th (all 
following dates are in Feb- 
ruary), Marymount freshmen 
will hold a dance, open, we 
hear to both atached and un- 
attached people. On the 16th 
a conflict appears, with the 
Mount MardiGras being held 
at the Ambassador and a Va 
lentine Mixer at Loyola. Our 
solution is, unattached girls go 
to Loyola, become temporarily 
(or permanently) attached and 
proceed immediately to Mardi- 
Gras. Attached couples go di- 
rectly to MardiGras, do not 
pass go, do not collect $200. . . 

Balladaires, Mount Trio 
Boast Eventful Year 


The Balladaires, popular Mount trio, can 
boast a very eventful year. Their most recent 
accomplishment was Paul Salamunovich's in- 
vitation to perform at the Mount Choral Con- 
cert, Jan. 7. 

Perhaps you are not too familiar with 
the girls in regard to their high school back- 
ground, their interests and how the Balladaires 
actually began. 

Alma Maters 
Arne Brennan and Jeanettc Kroger 
both from San Diego, where they attended 
the Academy of Our Lady of Peace. Natalie 
Cirello of North Hollywood attended Villa 
Cabrini Academy in Burbank. 

A variety of interests is represented in 
the majors of the three. English is Ann's de- 
partment, Jcanette pursues a Latin major, and 
Natalie studies in art and music. 

The three of them love 
.singing folk music in their 
own unique style. They work 
out exciting contemporary ar- 
rangements in about an hour. 
i: ill. u I:, it. History 
The Balladaires began work- 
ing together in their frosh 
year. Frosh Frolics 1960 ini- 
tiated their first public ap- 
pearance. They went on to win 
second place at the Mount 
Spring Sing. At the end of 
the year they won first place 
in the Novelty division at the 
Loyola Intercollegiate Spring 

During their first year they 
,ained recognition from people 
other then those here at the 
Mount. UCLA invited them to 
do a noon concert at the Medi- 
cal Center. This year the Balla- 
daires were invited back again 
lor a noon concert and a two 
hour evening concert. 

More and more people are 
becoming aware of the trio. 
They receive frequent requests 
to sing for ohurch organiza- 
tions and Mount clubs. 

With such a successful 
background behind them, 
hopes can be confidently 
placed on good things to

Junior-Senior Frosh-Soph as- 
semblies are the newest func- 
tion on campus this year, or 
ganized to stimulate a closer 
communication between facul- J 
ty and students. The first of | 
these assemblies, held in Octo- 
ber, brought such a favorable] 
response that further plans 
were made for more of these 

The purpose of these discus-

Mollie, ASB Sec. 
Bids Farewell 
To Student Body 

Dear Student Body: 

Last year when I was for- 
tunate to have been elected 
Student Body Secretary, I had 
no idea that my plans would 
change during the coming year. 
However, things have changed 
and I have decided to leave 
Mount St. Mary's at the end of 
this semester in order to go to 
work. My reason for this 
change is because of a wedding 
that per chance will take place 
this June. 

I would like to thank you 
all for giving me the oppor- 
tunity of being secretary. I 
hope I have done a worthy job 
for you. 

I do hope I will be able to 
visit all of you next semester. 
I will always have a special 
feeling for my friends, the 
sisters, and our college. Thank 
you very much.

Authorities Start Countdown.. 
Project Rush Blasts off Today! 

With the appearance of the Rush Box in the Circle today, the first sign of Project Rush goes 
into action. The Mount's three sororities' plans for rushing and pledging will be climaxed with the 
individual Presents to be held in March and April. Between now and then, however, there are 
many activities to attend, many people to meet, and lots of fun in store. 

Anticipating a mountain of questions from prospective rushees, the View has invited the three 
sorority presidents along with -the president of Tri- Sorority to give the rushees a small preview of 
Greek life. Explaining the "Why" and "How" are Joanne Dalesandro (Kappa Delta Chi,) Peggy 
Cleary (Gamma Sigma Phi), Jan Smith (Tau A'pha Zeta) and Alice Zamora (Tri-Sorority). 

Why Join? 

Why join a sorority? Alice 
Zamora, Tri-Sorority Presi- 
dent says: 

"No matter how small a 
school is, it is impossible to 
know everyone. Therefore, by 
belonging to a sorority one 
has a chance to make true, 
long-lasting friends. 

"A girl in a sorority has the 
advantages of many social 
functions — exchanges, parties, 
etc., but more important is the 
fact that she will make the ac- 
quaintance of more girls than 
if she hadn't joined. For in a 
sorority, which is a small 
group, each girl has a chance 
to show her creativity and in- 
itiative. By working with her 
sorority sisters she can make 
friends which she mi<rht never 
have had the opportunity to 
have made.

"A sorority gives a girl a 
chance to help her school, ac- 
quire more social grace and 
charm, and in all, to add an 
additional highlight to her col- 
lege career." 

But sorority life at the 
Mount is not just a merry 
round of parties and ex- 
changes; each sorority parti- 
cipates in several charitable ef- 
forts each year. Gammas do- 
nate to an orphanage in Mexico 
and visit at St. Anne's Home 
for the Aged. Kappas help the 
aged at Nazareth House and 
donate Christmas gifts for the 
poor of St. Anne's Parish. 
Taus visit at St. Anne's Ma- 
ternity Home and serve at a 
semi-annual luncheon there. 

Each sorority president 
agrees that the uniting of the 
girls in the common effort of 
good work tends to strengthen 
bonds and increase loyalty in 
the individual sorority.

January 16. Girls eligible to 
join a sorority are freshmen 
with a 2.4 average and sopho- 
mores and juniors with a 2.3 
average who have not attend- 
ed MSMC during the two pre- 
vious rush periods. 

Then come the rush teas! 

Last Exams . . . 

(Continued from Page 3) 
Both girls, as prerequisites 
for graduation in the field of 
history, have completed their 
Bachelor <>t \rK theses, Caro- 
hn's subject being "The Po- 
litical Appeal of the Know- 
Nothing Party" and M.K.'s be- 
ing "The Seminole Wars." 

Each girl should attend all 
three teas and meet as many 
actives in each sorority as pos- 
sible. The most important 
thing is to just be your friend- 
ly self; all three sorority presi- 
dents agree on this point. Kap- 
pa President, Joanne Dalesan- 
dro, says prospective members 
must have "good moral stand- 
ards" and be "eager to take an 
active part in school and so- 
rority pursuits." Gamma Presi- 
dent, Peggy Cleary, says a fu- 
ture member must be "a good 
representative of the Mount" 
and be "able to work with the 
group." Tau President, Jan 
Smith, says a girl must "show 
a great interest in the soror- 
ity" and "contribute to the 
group in some way." 

The week after the teas the 
rush parties begin. The themes 
of these parties are kept se- 
cret and each girl should plan 
to attend at least one, and pre- 
ferably more, rush parlies. 
Show enthusiasm and have 
fun; take an active part in 
rushing. The actives are put- 
ting their lime, money, and en- 
thusiasm into rush week and 
the rushees should take advan- 
tage of the opportunity to se- 
lect the group they feel they 
would like to belong to. 

After the rush parties, girls 
will receive telegram invita- 
tions to the preference din- 
ners. These invitations should 
be answered, either yes or no. 

Hazing and initiation follow, 
and finally Presents, where the 
new pledges will be presented 
to the sorority social atmos- 
phere at the grand climax of 
the pledge period. 

Sorority life has much to 
ao think twice before 
you decide not to rush. Have

SWES Schedules Events 
For Inter -Cultural Week 

During Inter-Cultural Week, 
February 19-23, SWES has 
planned an exhibit, a movie 
and a lecture dealing with the 
equality and the importance 
of all people. The Mount ob- 
servance of Inter-Cultural 
Week corresponds with Na- 
tional Brotherhood Week. 

A photomural exhibit "Man 

in Our Changing World" is 
displayed upstairs in the 
library. The exhibit, prepared 
by the Los Angeles County 
Committee on Human Rela- 
tions, will remain up this 
week. It consists of 24 sections 
showing the human, biological 
n nd sociological aspect* of all 
races of men. Some of the 
specific topics exhibited are: 

Mount Receives 
Science Grant 

The Department of Physical 
Science at the Mount has just 
received notice from the Na- 
tional Science Foundation that 
it has been granted $6,670 for 
the support of an "Undergrad- 
uate Science Education Pro- 
gram." The project, under the 
direction of Dr. Bundy, is an 
investigation of the purifica- 

Honor Committee

The Honor Committee has 
announced the appointment of 
four new members. They are 
senior Celine Hatcher and 
freshmen Leigh Albizati, Ann 
Kilgore and Pat Riley. 

The Honor Committee plans 
the publication of an Honor 
Code Handbook this semester 
to help clarify any dubious 
aspects of the system. 

The retreat masters for 
the annual retreat sched- 
uled for March 7 to 9 are 
Rev. I Hand Boyer and 
Father George, O. Carm.

tion, properties and activities 
of prorennin. 

The project will cover two 
summers, ten weeks each sum- 
mer, and will involve three stu- 
dents each session. The dead- 
line for selection of this sum- 
mer's participants is Feb. 26. 
Participants will be selected 
from a group of chemistry and 
biochemistry majors interested 
in research beyond the college 
level. Scholarship and finan- 
cial need are also required. 

This is the third grant 
awarded to the Mount Physi- 
cal Science Department. The 
first was a Public Health 
grant, and the second a simi- 
lar NSF grant in which Nancy 
Westberg and Barbara Dum- 
mel were the participants. 

Dr. Bundy Heads 
Convention Panel 

Recently seventy-six dele- 
gates from colleges all over 
the U.S. attended a series of 
panels sponsored' by the Na- 
tional Science Foundation in 
Denver, Colorado. Dr. Hallie 
Bundy of the Mount was one 
of two women delegates at the 

Reviewing research propo- 
sals from colleges all over the 
country was the purpose of 
the panels held on Feb. 6 and 
7. Arriving at the convention, 
Dr. Bundy found herself chair- 
man of a panel consisting of 
professors from Yale, Iowa 
State, Northwestern, and Uni- 
versity of Mississippi. 

Since the Foundation wished 
a fair representation of all 
kinds of colleges and univer- 
sities present at the panels, 
Dr. Bundy was not directly 
representing the Mount, but 
rather a small women's col- 
lege. Of her trip, Dr. Bundy 
says, "It was hard work but 

origin of races, variation in 
race, the relationship of in- 
telligence to race, and racial 
piejudice. This exhibit appear- 
ed at the Los Angeles County 
Museum from June 1952 to 
January 1953. 


The movie, which is free, is 
entitled "The High Wall." It 
begins with a gang fight in 
which two boys are stabbed. 
A social worker and a psy- 
chiatrist investigate the back- 
grounds of the two boys in- 
volved. One is "a fuil-blooded" 
American and the other is of 
Polish descent. The film shows 
how prejudice develops from 
childhood. It will be shown on 
Friday at 2:00 p.m. and in the 
evening in the Lecture Hall. 
The movie also is scheduled 
for Monday, February 26, at 
8:00 and at 9:00 a.m. 

SWES invites all Mounties 
to take part in these activities. 
Through them SWES hopes to 
increase the understanding 
jmong the peoples of the 

Papal A wards Honor 
Mrs. Clem, Dr. Stanton 

Mrs. K. Cary Clem, Mount graduate and member of the 
Mount Board of Directors, and Dr. Mary Stanton, former 
Mount faculty member have recently been awarded the Cross 
Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice by Pope John XXIII. This award 
honors outstanding service to the Church or to the Pope. 

Mrs. Clem was a member of 
the Mount's first sophomore 
class. She has served as pres-

A Life of Power and Direction 

Education is power. Within 
education is potential for good 
or evil. Directed poorly, the 
educated mind and body is 
capable of doing great harm. 
Directed well, the educated 
mind and body is capable of 
doing the greatest good. 
Catholic education gives bene- 
ficial direction and Catholic 
students accepting this direc-

Catholic education has been 
the lifelong work of two

recently retired — Sister Cele- 
stine and Sister Gertrude

faculty when the college began

Academy in 1925. With little

Student Rule 
Necessity Or Not? 

On January 1, 1962, a seventy-year old history of student 
government came to an end at Columbia University. The 
demise of student government at one of the more prominent 
educational institutions has brought certain questions to our 
mind. First of all, we question the efficacy of student govern- 
ment at all. 

For three and a half years, we have watched the 
operation of student government on this campus. We have 
listened to the standard arguments for its existence: it 
encourages students to develop leadership capacities; it 
makes the student share more fully in campus affairs; 
it aids generally in the development of student character; 
it relieves the faculty and administration of burden which 
might more easily be borne by students. We question 
whether these arguments hold true. 

It would seem that those students possessing leadership 
qualities would find a means to channel them in the absence 
of student government. Other outlets, such as departmental 
and professional clubs and organizations, would appear to be 
suitable vehicles for the energy of these individuals. 

It appears, also, that the student who is not a leader 
is not involved to any great extent in campus affairs due 
to the fact that student government exists. Evidence of 
this is perhaps the attendance — or laek of it — at recent 
Student body meetings. Those students not leaders do not 
seem to be noticeably developing their personalities as a 
result of student government activities. 

In its aspect of relieving the administration of unnecessary 
trouble, it might be pointed out that it is the purpose of the 
administration to administrate. It is doubtful if there are many 
details now handled by student government which could not be 
handled with more speed and ease by the administration. 

At the moment, the question of the necessity of stu- 
dent government on our campus is purely an academic 
one. We are, however, interested in discovering whether 
there is a more substantial argument than those usually 
presented for the existence of student government at the 
Mount or anywhere else.

While not one of the original

Gertrude Joseph is still one 
of the pioneers. She came to

while the college was still at

Per Ardua Ad Astra 

Mountain climbing as such is no fun. Let the mountaineer 
rave as he will about the sheer joy of defying the naked rock. 
That joy would die in his breast the moment he knew that 
there was no peak but only unending wall above him. It is 
from the existence of a summit that toiling upwards derives 
its worth. In itse'f climbing is pure pain. 

Perhaps this is the sense in which one must understand 
the slogan: "learning can be fun." Learning as such is not fun. 
It is just pure drudgery. Whatever joy is to be found in learn- 
ing is borrowed joy, borrowed, that is, from the mere exis- 
tence of a peak towards which the path of learning leads, but 
about whose nature the student can only dimly guess. 

If this be the correct view of the matter, the conclusion 
would follow that what the student should expect from the 
teacher is not some trick whereby the pain of learning would 
dissolve. Rather should he hope for periodic eye-witness ac- 
counts of the summit. True, the student might fail to grasp the 
stumbling words that tried to paint the lofty scene, but in the 
fervent tone and flashing eyes he would find evidence enough 
that another had stood on the peak. This would suffice. 

What, then, of holiness? Can the Christian life "be fun"? 
Yes, but in the same sense that climbing and learning can be 
fun. Asceticism is an ugly word and mysticism is a dark one. 
Yet, between them they cover the full range of the Christian s 
life through childhood, school, work, love, marriage, parent- 
hood, old age. The joy which accompanies them is borrowed 
joy, borrowed, that is, from the mere existence of a peak 
hidden in the clouds. 

We must not, then, look to our religious pedagogues fur 
some trick that will make the pain of holiness dissolve. But 
more, we may not hope for occasional eye-witness accounts of 
the summit. In this matter all alike, students and teachers 
must toil upwards in a common faith reposed in a Teacher who 
said "No man has seen the Father but the Son".

Dr. Christie, Psych. Teacher 
Shares Honors, Hobbies, Travels 


"A fruitful life overflowing with perseverance and stamina," describes, in short, the 
life of Dr. Roberta Christie, psychology teacher at the Mount. Experiencing her childhood 
days in Illinois Dr. Christie attended Mundelein College in Chicago where she received her 
B.A. in English while an active participant instudent government, athletics and journalism. 
It was during this time of her life also that Dr. Christie was converted to the Catholic faith. 
After college Doctor worked for Girl Scouts in various Eastern cities and then over- 
seas with the American Red Cross in England 
for two years during World War II. Arriving 
back in the U.S.A. she attended Columbia Uni- 
versity and received her M.A. and Education 
Degree in Guidance, thus enabling her to serve 
as Group Work Consultant for the New York 
City Youth Board. Next Dr. Christie taught 
education and psychology courses at Brooklyn 
College, then on to Stephens College, Columbia, 
Missouri where she taught psychology and did 
personal counseling. 

As a result of summer vacationing in 
California Dr. Christie finally moved to 
Sacramento where she join- 
ed the Sacramento State Col- 
lege faculty for nine years. 
During this time most of her 
work was with student gov- 
ernment, student activities, 
and supervision of both off- 
campus and on-campus hous- 
ing. She also found time for 
gardening, reading, listening 
to music at concerts or on 
her home high-fi, and for at- 
tending art shows and plays 
in San Francisco. 
In 1958 Dr. Christie w a s 

selected for listing in the first 

edition of WHO'S WHO OF 


she had the urge to travel, Dr. 

Christie left Sacramento to go 

abroad, visiting such places as 

Europe and the Holy Land.

Phil Rehfeldt, Clarinetist 
MSMC Graduate Student 

Clarinetist Phil Rehfeldt 
comes to the Mount as a grad- 
uate student working toward 
bis Masters in Music. Mr. Reh- 
feldt received top billing at 
the Mount College Chamber 
Symphony, Feb. 5, for his 
solo clarinet performance. 

I . of A. Graduate 

Born in Freeport Illinois, 
Mr. Rehfeldt traveled tc Ari- 
zona after high school to 
claim the University of Ari- 
zona his college Alma mater. 

Motivated not only by the 
desire for further study in 
music, but also by curiosity 
about the "Big City,' Phil 
chose to come to Los Angeles 
and the Mount. 

Phil has played under con- 
ductors Aaron Copland, Ferdi 
Groffe, Carlos Chavez, and 
Howard Hansen. Besides tak- 
ing 12 units of credit at the 
Mount he is studying under 
Kalman Bloch, principal clari- 
netist with the Los Angeles 
Philharmonic Orchestra. 

"Classical music, with 
ouotes on the classical," com- 
ments Phil, "is the only type 
of music I choose to play on 
the clarinet. However, don't

brought back to her by an extensive collec- 
tion of slides. 

In April 1961, she received a citation 
from the California Association of Women, 
Deans and Counselors for twenty-five years 
of service to young women. In September, 
1981, Dr. Christie came to Los Angeles to 
teach psychology at the Mount. 

Dr. Christie's social life includes member-

number of professional and 
honorary organizations. Among 
them are: The American Cath- 
olic Association, American Per-

tion and Psi Chi, the national 
honor society of psychology. 

Dr. Christie centers her 
outside interests on the arls. 
Her favorite writers include 
Thomas Merton, Francis 
Thompson, and Pierre Char- 
les. Georges Roualt, E m i 1 
Nolde and Zurbaran are 
among her favorite artists. 

When asked of her impres- 
sion of the Mount and Stu- 
dents Dr. Christie remarked 
that she loved the Mount and 
the Catholic atmosphere en- 
circling it. "One of my most 
vivid impressions is the atti- 
tude of the girls concerning 
the Mount. Never have I heard 
them make a pessimistic re- 
mark. They certainly hold the 
Mount in high esteem." 

Mount Given 114-Year-Old 
Marble Bust of Pius IX 

Mount St. Mary's College 
received a 114-year old life 
size marble head bust of Pope 
Pius IX on Wednesday, Jan. 
17, as a gift from noted com- 
poser-philanthropist James F. 
(Jimmy) McHugh. 

The presentation was made 
by McHugh to Sister Mary 
Rebecca, Mount St. Mary's 
College president, in cere- 
monies at the Charles Willard 
Coe Memorial Library on the 
main campus. 

The bust, done in Carrara 
marble by Pietro da Torano 
Tenerani (1798-1869), a native 

of Carrara, is signed and dated 
1848 and was blessed per- 
sonally by Pius IX whose 32- 
year pontificate (1846-1878) 
is the longest in the history 
of Roman Catholic Church. 
The pope was born in Senigal- 
lia, Italy, in 1792. 

Sister Rebecca said the gift 
has particular significance be- 
cause it was Pius IX who 
granted final approbation to 
the rule of the Sisters of St. 
Joseph of Carondelet, the or-

With Apologies to Genesis 7:24 

'And the Waters Held Their Own 
Over the Earth for Five Days' 

In those days, the Almighty sent a great 
flood, and the dam of heaven he loosed, and 
chaos rained down upon southern California. 
And there was great tribulation among the 
people, so that they abandoned homes and 
sought a higher land. 

These people being unprepared, there 
arose strange customs and manners of 
dress. And on the Mount of SI. Mary, the 
students began to wear all manner of 
foreign dollies: long, loose-filting hose, in 
diverse colors; strange and most hole] 
cloth shoes, the oldesl that could be 
found; skirts of great length, as were 
worn in the times of the giants; ureat 
lengths of transparent material, with 
which they bound head and hooks. 

And among these student there rose up 
prophets who chided them with their mis- 
deeds, and spoke of forty days and forty 
nights, and even of an end of the world. But 
the students were unheeding, and continued in 
their studious pursuits. 

And all these things the people endured, 

all the while keeping their own counsel and 
preparing pleas to send by sea to the governor. 
And on the fifth day the flood had 
passed, and the city of the angels, stripped 
bare of fertile earth, raised it an altar to 
the Most High, and made burnt offerings. 
And the Lord, smelling a scent which 
pleased him, made resolve to command 
the floodgates of heaven to be closed. And 
the people rejoiced. 

But on the Mount of St. Mary, the stu- 
dents were not glad. And they began to mur- 
mur against the heavenly gates. Why should 
this deluge stop? they said; why can it i 
last forty days and forty nights, as it did in 
the days of our fathers? 

For then we would not have to go to 
school. But the more wise among them 
bethought themselves of tin destruction which 
the flood had wrought, and pondering this. 
gave thanks to the Lord; whereupon he waa 

ed, and discounted the foolishness of the

Those who fit no certain niche

Wednesday, March 13, 1962 



To whom it may concern : 

During Ihe last semester, 
and especially during the las! 
few months, much stress has 
been put on the students of 
Mount St. Mary's College to 
take a stand for or against 
the Nuclear Testing Program. 
The result of this would be to 
communicate the school's reso- 
lution to the United States 
Disarmament Commission in 
regard to this issue. 

However, am I to suppose 
that action will be taken ac- 
cording to the resolution of 
this or any other school? 
Would the Government or any 

other military authority even 
consider our decisions? 

Having a close relative who 
has personal contact with the 
President, his cabinet and 
staff, I can say that decisions 
affecting our military status 
are in no way influenced by 
ihe resolutions of Mount. St. 
Mary's College or any other 
school. These decisions arc 
solely the responsibility of 
the President, his staff and 
committees, and are based en- 
tirely on their findings. 

How can we, who have a 
scant idea of the problem, ever 
hope to influence these people 

St. Joseph: A Man 

What is the measure of a 
man? Is it the evaluation of 
what he does during his life- 
time? Or is it the considera- 
tion of how he does what he 
does during his lifetime? 

If a man be measured by 
what he has done, St. Joseph 
■was a man out of the ordinary. 
He lived a hidden life all the 
way. To his neighbors at 
Nazareth, he was just a car- 
penter. But his neighbors knew 
that he was just, that he was 
honest, that his work was 
good, that he lived by the 
religious principles of his 
people, that he obeyed the 
laws of the land, and that he 
was a good husband and a 
good father. His hidden life 
was both ordinary and ex- 

If a man be measured by 
bow he has accomplished what 
he has done, St. Joseph was 
the most extraordinary of all 
mankind. During his silent 
y»-ars, he performed his car- 
1< 'iter's work well, he lived 
Ehi laws he was bound by 
rientiously, but most of 
providing the best 
protection find the totality of 
t . material needs of his Holy 
and his wife. St. Joseph 
was an extrordinary man be- 
lli performed his or- 

dinary courage, justice, wis- 
dom and love. — P.W.

who are more than aware of 
the entire situation? The in- 
formation that we receive is 
mainly from the newspaper 
and magazines of the day 
which are often editorialized 
to fit the demand of the pub- 
lic. Almost every article print- 
ed today is editorialized by the 
writer to such a degree that 
the American public can never 
know the true or entire situa- 
tion. This is true not only of 
nuclear testing, but also of the 
Cuba situation. The entire 
issue dealing with Cuba was 
never released to the press, and 
that which was, bore the 
opinions of the writer. 

Since we can only obtain a 
partial idea of the problems 
and the facts concerned with 
it, what exactly is the purpose 
of the meetings to discuss nu- 
clear testing? Perhaps the time 
spent at these discussions 
would benefit the students 
more if it was put into study- 
ing, and to leave the decisions 
to those members of the Gov- 
ernment who know, apprehend, 
and understand the entire 


At the risk of incurring the 
wrath of the writer of this let- 
ter as well as the wrath of the 
student government, we will 
answer this letter. First of all, 
we doubt that there is any in- 
tention of attempting to influ- 
ence the United States Gov- 
ernment on such a question 
with regard to policy-making 
on the part of the student 
body. The purpose of such a 
petition, as we see it. is to do 
nothing more than express the 
opinion of this group of stu- 
dents in this situation; they 
certainly are not intent upon 
changing the United States' 
policies with the admittedly 
meager information they pos- 
sess — if it were possible for 
them to do. They merely want 
their opinion to be heard. 

Admittedly, any writer writ- 
ing for publication leaves some 
imprint of his own opinion 
within his articles. But, if 
several articles relating to the 
same topic arc perns it, it is 
likel\ that the number of opin- 
ions expressed will roughlj 
correspond to the number of 
articles read. It is left to the

After Questionnaire 
VIEW To Evaluate 

During the coming week 
Mount students will be asked 
to fill out a questionnaire, 
prepared and distributed by 
members of the journalism 
class. The purpose of this 
questionnaire is to discover 
what role the VIEW plays on 
this campus, to see if the 
newspaper is really in contact 
with the realities of student 
life. We hope that all students 
will use this opportunity to 
voice their opinions, positive 
or negative. 

Our aims regarding the 
VIEW were expressed in the 
lirst issue of the newspaper 
in September. We believed 
then, and still do, that the 
campus newspaper is the 
sounding-board for student 
opinion, the forum for airing 
student problems, the reflec- 
tion of student life. 

In the past six months we 
have explored and criticized 
much of student life on this 
campus, including such organi- 
zations as NSA and student 
government. We have done 
this, not so much with an eye 

to criticize individuals in these 
groups as much as to ask the 
organizations to evaluate 
themselves on this campus, to 
analyze their actions in rela- 
tion to our own student com- 
munity. Each year the Mount 
•grows larger; each year her 
scope is broadened. Institu- 
tions must adjust to this 
change, must constantly re- 
evaluate themselves in the 
light of changing conditions. 

The campus newspaper is no 
exception to this re-evalua- 
tion process. It, too, must 
analyze its policies and re- 
late them to the student com- 
munity. It may well be that 
these polices are in need of 
change or redirection. If so, 
now is the time to begin. And 
this is where each student is 
asked to cooperate. The MEW 
is a student newspaper; we 
ask now for a student evalua- 
tion. Only by maintaining % 
real contact with student life 
and problems can the MEW 
continue to call itself a stu- 
dent newspaper. M.E. 

Of Time and 
Or, Bijouterie 


The inner mechanism of 
the wrist watch remains an 
object of wonder and admira- 
tion even in this advanced age 
of computers and satellites. 
What child has ever resisted 
for long the temptation to 
pry off the shiny case in an 
effort to see what lies under- 
neath the sightless face and 
groping hands. And when he 
did, what wonder filled him at 
the sight of tiny wheels, deli- 
cate spindles, jewelled bear- 

Well might he wonder, for if 
he but knew it, he was look- 
ing at the heavens in minia- 
ture. The cycles and epicycles 
of Ptolemy's astronomy are 
there to imitate the move- 
ments of the stars, to count 
our nights and days. Oddl\ 
the Greek word "kosmos" can 
mean a jewel, and jewellers 
sell watches, and. a watch is a 
little cosmos. One could get 
lost in reflections on the per- 
Cection of the watchmaker's 
art, on how men strive to 
match the precious character 
of time by the care bestowed 
upon its keeper, oi

see engaged the wheels of

Suicidal Tendencies Cited 
Among Collegiates 

Around finals time for the fall semester of this year an 
article appeared in the January 22 issue of Newsweek which 
cited, along with other results, the many nationwide suicides 
among America's collegiates due to exam tension. 

One large college (I hope) in Gainesville, Fla., claimed 
that before psychiatrists and psychologists went to work on 
the students, there was an average of five suicides a year. 
Investigation of the reasons behind such obnoxious behavior 
was soon begun. (One can easily see the danger to the enroll- 
ment, if such carryings on continued.) 

It is rather indicative of something, that here at the 
Mount, an ideal place for suicides, we have no record of any 
such occurrence. One need only look out from any good van- 
tage point on the campus to see a myriad of relatively good 
hanging trees and any number of dangerously steep and roll- 
ing slopes. 

Are Mounties so well adjusted that this thought never 
enters their minds or could it be that the thought has come, 
but since the fire, there is a good chance that any stress on 
one of the now brittle trees would result in one felled tree 
and a rather sloppy and unsuccessful hanging job? 

At any rate, the article continued to give psychological 
explanations of the mental block that causes many students 
to flunk out on exams. 

"If you follow the preordained scholastic rut your family 
expects, there's no way to rebel except by flunking out. 
Therapy can show the student he's hurting himself more than 
bis parents, and should find some healthier way to rebel." 

It is a little difficult to determine what "a healthier way 
to rebel" would be, outside of the perfect murder, but this 
too has been beyond the scope of Mounties (to date, at least). 
This all goes to prove that here in this remote corner of Los 
Angeles dwell a group of women (excluding certain music 
enthusiasts), who have cut themselves off from the rest of 
the wacky world of education to live a healthy, happy life 
among hanging trees and suicide slopes? 

New Deal on Campus 

February 28, the first Stu- 
dent-Faculty Coffee Hour took 
place on the Mount campus. 
Coffee hours are on trial basis 
to judge their effectiveness as 
a replacement for Junior-Sen- 
ior, Frosh-Soph Assemblies. 

Pertinent Topics 

Some of the topics discussed 
at the first coffee hour in- 

a) Should Mount St. Mary's 
adopt a three-quarter sys- 
tem for the college year 
rather than semesters? 

b) Should students establish 
a student senate to take 
care of legislation rather 
than leaving such legisla- 
tion for student body 

O Do our students have too 
many activities, and 
should activities be cut 

d) Does student government 
really mean anything to 
the average student? 

Would they be better or 
worse off without it? 
Immediate Action 

At a meeting following the 
coffee hour, student council 
began taking action on the 
suggestions offered. First in 
the line of action is an in- 
vestigation as to the set up 
of student government at the 
Mount, its effectiveness and 
need. After investigation, pro- 
posals for changes in the con- 
stitution will be taken up if 
found necessary. 

Secondly, student council 
members are checking into the 
possibility of having a debate 
to show pros and cons to the 
three quarter systemn. 
Another One 

A second coffee hour will be 
held after mid-terms, around 
the beginning or middle of 
April. Everyone is invited to 
attend these coffee hours and 
to bring up any topic they 
want to discuss. The at- 
mosphere is informal, and the 
coffee's free. 



This is the "go go culture" 
edition of 50-50. We shall 
endeavor to bring you up to 
date on all the social and cul- 
tural activities in and around 
Los Angeles. 

Before we begin, however, 
lest we forget: for Jonnie 
Mobly — Westwords. Also, for 
those of you who enjoy out- 
door sports, watch for Heidi. 
Heidi is small, with short dark 
hair, and is frequently seen 
along the fire road, writing 
View editorials as she at- 
tempts to climb out of the 
ruts she often falls into. 

On to loftier subjects: the 
sorority presents will take 
place in the following order — 
Kappas on March 18, Gam- 
mas on March 25, and Taus on 
April 1. We haven't asked the 
Taus their opinion as to ap- 
propriateness of date. 

Out in the world: IHC has 
planned a series of double 
bills: March 18 at 8:30 A 
Phoenix too Frequent and 
End Game, March 16 The 
Browning Version and The 
Chairs. On the 17 we have a 
double double bill with a 
matinee (2 30) performance 
of Fumed Oak and a repeat of 
End Game, and the evening 
repeats of A Phoenix too Fre- 
quent and The Browning Ver- 
sion. These are all one-acts, 
and as yet no word has leak- 
ed out as to prices. 

The Coronet Theater offers 
live drama at student rates. 
Currently they are offering 
Hardly A Kind Word about

Miss Smith, '59 Mount Grad 
Returns as Art Teacher 

"Art, unfortunately, is most 
often considered as a luxury 
rather than as the definite 
necessity that it is," believes 
Miss Diane Smith — a young, 
new addition to the Mount art 
department. Miss Smith, who 
was a '59 Mount graduate 
(cum laude), has always found 
art a fascinating subject for 
study, and, as a specialist in 
art history, is successfully im- 
parting this fascination on stu- 
dents and friends alike. 
Shifting Interests 

Miss Smith was born in Ana- 
conda, Montana, and has trav- 
eled throughout the Northwest. 
The greatest attraction of this 
section of the country is its 
"great scenic beauty" — espe- 
cially that of Washington. 
While attending the Mount 
C55-'59) her major interest 
shifted from English to history 
to French and, finally at the 
end of her sophomore year, it 
settled permanently on art. 
"I'd always been interested in 
art and read quite a bit about 
it so it was just a natural 
transition in the end." The will 
to teach seemed to come just 
as naturally to Miss Smith — 
"It's more than a job, it's defi- 
nitely a vocation." 

Mount Teacher 

Being an ex-Mountie, the de- 
cision to come and teach at 
the Mount was not a difficult 
one. The opportunities, she be- 
lieves, to develop strong teach- 
er-student ties in a small col- 
lege such as the Mount are nu- 
merous and necessary. To offer 
opportunities for the art stu- 
dents to "mingle," the depart- 
ment has set up a sort of art- 
ist's garret-styled room in 104 


Brady — the walls of which are 
sprinkled with the works of 
our talented Mounties. 

Miss Smith's extra-curricu- 
lar interests are centered 
around art and music. Her 
favorite painters (". . . if I 
had to choose") are Cezanne 
and Rouault. Musically she 
favors jazz — particularly the 
jazz of Miles Davis. 

Busy Future 

As for the future plans of 
the art department. Miss Smith 
would like to introduce a 
course in primitive art by next 
year. Why primitive? "... be- 
cause few people know much 
about it and many modern 
painters (i.e. Picasso) often 
revert to it."

Nuremberg — Dynamic, 
Shocking Blockbuster 


Take our controversial issue 
of moral justice; add one di- 
rector with a taste and reputa- 
tion for making films on such 
issues; assemble a cast with 
the talent and experience to 
carry off such themes with 
force and realism; put them 
together and you have a block- 
buster — Judgment at Nurem- 
berg — dynamic, shocking, pow- 

From the moment Nurem- 
burg crashes onto the screen, 
it is a compelling and adult 
film. Director Stanley Kramer 
(The Defiant Ones, On the 
Beach) has created a swift- 
moving, realistic film which 
hits at some points like a slap 
in the face. 

Action centers around the 
1948 war trials of the Ger- 
man judges at Nuremburg, the 
old mecca of Nazi power. The 
film revolves around two 
views: the people involved and | 
their own human dramas, and i 

the morality at stake. ' 

From the multitude of big 
names in Judgment it is diffi- 
[ cult to say who are the stars. 
Veteran actor Spencer Tracy 
receives top billing for his por- 
! trayal of the reflective New 
England judge who takes 
charge of the seven-month 
trials. As a dignified, somber 
German judge — defendant. 
Bert Lancaster plays a role 
totally out of character, but 
excellent. The young German 
actor Maximilian Schell as the 
attorney for the defense gives 
a stunning performance- 

The supporting cast of Nu- 
ernberg is the best any film 
has had for a long time. 

But of all the cast, the 
one person who stands out 
above all of them for sheer 
acting brilliance is Montgom- 
ery Clift. In his role as a sim- 
ple-minded German farmer 
castrated by the Nazis, he 
gives a magnificent, shattering!

and green. And we accomplish this 
in several ways, working closely with 
fish and game and wildlife officials. 

Water wells, essential to our drilling 
operations, nourish thirsty plants and 
animals . . . and nesting and breeding 
ponds arc built for wild fowl. 

When wells arc in, we assure new 
growth by resccding grassland and by 
planting new trees in the work area. 

Exploring teams in helicopters keep 
sharp watch for Tires, and on the 
ground our men with bulldozers and 
water trucks stand ready to help 
when fire strikes. 

Cood conservation includes thou- 
sands of oil-producing areas that are 
also used for recreation, outdoor 
sports, farming and grazing. 

Multiple use of the land allows more 
people to enjoy our heritage and the 
beauty of the great outdoors. At the 
same time, our natural resources are

Celine Hatcher Merits 
Honorable Mention 

Celine Hatcher, Mount sen- 
ior, recently received Honor- 
able Mention in the 1962 Wood- 
row Wilson National Fellow- 
ship Foundation competition. 

The Foundation awarded 
1407 Honorable Mentions from 
9975 candidates from 965 col- 

Celine is majoring in Eng- 
lish and minoring in French. 
After graduation she plans to 
attend graduate school, per- 
haps at UCLA, where she will 
work for her Master's Degree 
in English. Later she hopes to 
teach college. 

The Woodrow Wilson Na- 

Mount Serocis 
Five Delegates 

To Model 

The twelfth annual Model 
United Nations opens April 11 
at San Diego State College 
with five Mount students in at- 
tendance. The delegation, this 
year representing Hungary, is 
composed of five seniors; they 
are: Mary Erschoen. chairman. 
Dawn Ferry, Nena Jeffares, 
Liz McCready, and Toni Yed- 

Three freshmen, Betsy Dick- 
erson, Ann Kilgore, and Pat 
Smith, will attend sessions Fri- 
day and Saturday of this week 
as observers. They will bj ac- 
companied by Dr. Ronald 
Oard, the group's moderator. 

The Model United Nations is 
a student organization which 
includes approximately 90 col- 
leges and universities in the 
western region of the United 
States. It operates accorJini; 
1. 1 the procedures employed by 
the United Nations, hot ling 
plenary sessions and committee 
meetings as well as caucus and 
bloc sessions. 

The Mount has pr^vi »usly 
represented Albania and Ye- 
men at the Model United Na- 

tional Fellowship Founda- 
tion, begun in 1957 by a 
Ford Foundation grant of 
S24,000,000, encourages stu- 
dents to continue their edu- 
cation after graduation and 
to consider a career in col- 
lege teaching. Dr. Hans Ros- 
enhaupt. National Director 
of the Foundation, comment- 
ed, "The telling distinction 
bestowed by the program 
upon future college teachers 
comes with the first step in 


the competition: nomination 
by a faculty member." 

Concerning Honorable Men- 
tions, Dr. Rosenhaupt noted. 
"Over 1400 candidates who 
had been invited for an inter- 
view but who did not win a 
Fellowship were awarded Hon- 
orable Mention. Since their 
names are made known to oth- 
er agencies awarding fellow- 
ships, it is possible that the 
majority of this group will re- 
ceive alternate awards enabl- 
ing them to begin graduate 
study in the fall of 1962." 

The candidates begin by 
sending an autobiography, 
their transcript afcjl letters 
of recommendation to the 
Foundation. On the basis of 
these the number of candi- 
dates is narrowed down. The 
next step is an interview. 
Celine was interviewed at 
the Sheraton West Hotel in 
Los Angeles with other ap- 
plicants from California and 
Hawaii. The results of the 
interview are sent to the na- 
tional office where the final 
selection is made.

readings from his latest dramatization The Ladies of Soissons. 

Mr. Lavery is a past president of the National Catholic 
Theatre Conference. He believes that the Catholic Theatre is 
"a life-giving force which has no part with mediocrity."

Motilities Win Seven 
Out Of Nine Prizes 

Don't ever say a Mount girl doesn't live right. Seven 
Mount Saint Mary's students must be living the good life to 
have won such wonderful prizes in the Creative Writing Con- 
test sponsored by the Cabrini Literary Guild. This annual 
contest is open to students of Catholic Colleges and members 
of Newman Clubs in Los Angeles. 

Yet, out of all the participating colleges, the Mount 
walked away with seven of the nine prizes. This record cer- 
tainly speaks for the Mount's literary talent. It's also quite 
a financial feat, for to win $750 of the $1000 prize money 
is worthy of recognition. 

In the short story division Sue Donovan took first 
place and $200 for a story entitled "The Tryst." "Half- 
Cadence" by Jeannette Kroger captured second place, while 
Peggy Langhans won third with "Saffron and Plum." 

"The Kite" won first place in the poetry division for 
Judy Krommer, and Lu Mattson took second with "On Fil- 
ippino Lippi's Self Portrait." 

In the essays, Jane Luecke won a second place $100 
for "The Characterization of Sophocle's Antigone," and 
Maureen Curran received $50 for third place with "The Cab- 
bage of Victory Mansions." 

Seven winners out of nine, $750 out of $1000 is an 
impressive record, both for the girls and the Mount. Some- 
body must be under a lucky star. 

Members of the Honor 
Committee will be in the 
Browsing Room on Friday 
at 10 and 11 o'clock to dis- 
cuss the Honor System with 
interested students and fa- 
culty. Criticisms and general 
comments on the Honor Sys- 
tem will he welcomed. 

Honor Committee meet- 
ings, which are held Wed- 
nesdays at 10 o'clock, are 
open to both students and 

Legion, a drama of the Jesuits, 
which played for three months 
in New York and six months 
on the road. It has been trans- 
lated into ten languages and 
performed in Rome, Milan. 
Prague, Zurich, Budapest, Vi- 
enna, London, Paris, and Latin 
America. Other plays are : 
Second Spring, a story about 
Cardinal Newman; and The 
Magnificent Yankee, a play 
about Justice Holmes. 

Mr. Lavery has also drama- 
tized several novels: SONG AT 
by Sidney Cunliffe-Owens. This 
last is a fictional chronicle of 
three centuries of a legendary 
Order of Benedictine nuns. 

Everyone is invited to the 
lecture. There is no admission 

Gloria Gives 
Senior Recital 

On Palm Sunday, April 15, 
Gloria Left will give her sen- 
ior recital at 7:00 p.m. in the 
Little Theatre. Gloria, a voice 
major, is giving her recital as 
a graduation requirement. 

For those of you who at- 
tended the last Wednesday 
concert, you'll remember that 
Gloria is the talented soprano 
who sang then, too. On April 
15, she will sing a program 
consisting of English, Italian, 
German, French, and contem- 
porary sons. Gloria will be ac- 
companied by Helen Sundgren. 

Sister Rebecca Tells 
Cause of Tuition Raise 

The following letter from Sister Rebecca, president of the col- 
lege, explains the cause of the tuition raise next fall. 

Beginning in the fall of 1962 there will be an increase 
in the tuition charges following a sharp increase in the oper- 
ating costs of the college. The "cost of living" is rising in all 
areas and the cost of maintaining an educational institution 
— faculty salaries, teaching materials, and supplies, and 
library materials — follows the upward trend. 

There will be one flat charge of $375 each semester. This 
amount includes tuition, laboratory fees, health service, in- 
surance, testing, cap and gown rental, parking, music practice 
rooms, library, lecture, publication fees, class and student 
body dues, contribution to Red Cross and missions, and grad- 
uation fee. 

The following expenses, those which will be paid primar- 
ily to outside agencies or persons, are not included fn the 
tuition charge: 

Practice Teaching Fee, payable to the Los Angeles 

Board of Education 

330 Observation and Participation, payable to 

Los Angeles Board of Education $ 20 

135, Laboratory for Child Study, payable to 

Santa Monica Unified School District $ 10 

146, Home Management Laboratory, budget 

for living in Home Maangement $130 

Private music lessons are payable to the individual 

Board and Room charges will remain the same. 
This increase in tuition is not made because of fire losses, 
nor is any of the income to be used for fire replacements 
nor for the building fund. It is to be used only to maintain 
the high quality of education that the Mount has always 
endeavored to provide to its students.

For the vibrant senior nurses — who get eight hours

Smoker, 1:00 a.m. Lesson plans completed, charts 
legibly written, bulletin boards in progress. The student teach-

to renew her energy for the coming day.

awaits the class.

wants the class to know? 

11:00 a. in. Three-group P.E. (I always thought I'd 
like to be in a circus, but I never thought I'd run one!)

No Honor 
At Mount? 

Recently, the Honor Committee issued a 
questionnaire to a cross-section of Mount stu- 
dents. The statistical results of this question- 
naire are shown on page 5. A close examin- 
ation of the answers to the questions reveals 
some interesting facts concerning student at- 
titude towards the Honor System on this 

In the first part of the questionnaire 
— that dealing with the theory of the Honor 
System — the answers were a definite major- 
ity in favor of it. In the latter sections — 
the questions dealing with the actual prac- 
tice of the Honor System — the answers were 
either obviously divided or in the negative. 
Which poses a question. 

Can it be that the students on this 
campus, while thinking that the Honor Sys- 
tem is a "nice idea," are really too immature 
to practice it ? 

Perhaps the general feeling is that the 
Honor System is too ill-defined. This is 
hardly plausible, though, in view of the fact 
that, time and again, emphasis has been 
placed on the idea that the Honor System 
depends on individual effort. It is not a 
function of the Honor Committee to enforce 
the code. This is up to the individual. With 
the basic knowledge that it is the duty of 
each student to strive for personal honesty, 
the average, thinking individual should be 
able to reason towards a code of honorable 
living, with or without the specific details 
suggested by the Honor Committee. 

It is one thing to understand, to try, and 
to fail. It is quite another thing to understand, 
to do nothing, and to fail. The results of the 
questionnaire seem to indicate that the latter 
course has been chosen. There is knowledge 
of the Honor System on this campus; the 
problem is that nothing has been done about it. 

When the Honor System was initiated 
on this campus, it was done with the presup- 
position that everyone is basically honest. It 
was presumed that the way to encourage 
the development of the habit of honor was 
to provide an atmosphere in which more stress 
could be laid on the honor of the individual. 
It was also presumed that the spirit of honor 
had existed on this campus from its begin- 
nings. It was presumed further that Mount 
students were mature enough to. wish to do 
something with this spirit of honor. It now 
appears that these assumptions may have 
been incorrect. — M. E. 

Changes Seen 
In Student 

Recently there have been questions raised 
about the value of student government. These 
arguments are usually directed against stu- 
denl government. This seems to be a fallacy. 
Theoreticaly, if students really participated 
in student government, they could develop 
leadership capacities; they could learn how 
the democratic process works; they could un- 
derstand more about people and ideas through 
discussions with faculty and other students; 
they could handle with maturity the problems 
that exist between the students and the facul- 
ty, or the students and the administration 

Hut student government shouldn't be

NOT HERE . . . 


It is the mark of the truly Christian 
ascetic that he does not condemn that which 
he denounces. He may set aside many crea- 
ture comforts but not because he judges 
them evil. He may withdraw from many 
legitimate activities but not because he 
views them as unwholesome. On the con- 
trary, the true Christian will always in- 
sist that the things which God has made 
are good, and the use of them, within a 
well-ordered framework of life, is beneficial. 


... If the Christian renounces any cre- 
ated good it is because he sees it as a gift 
from God and he knows only too well how 
easy it is for him to become more interested 
in the gift than in the given. He knows that 
at heart he is still a child. His fascination 
with his toys though it can be the beginning 
of philosophical wonder, turning outward and 
healthy, can just as readily become a self- 
centered possession, turning inward and hurt- 
ful. It is his own nature that he does not 
trust when he puts the good things aside. 

Deep in the mind of the Christian as- 
cetic is another thought, that he is a mem- 
ber of a human family which has forfeited 
any right to the gifts of God. God continues 
to offer the gifts, but the Christian in all 
decency must make a sacrifice of them. 
How else can he associate himself in love 
with sinners and yet dissociate himself from 
sin. How otherwise live and die with Christ 
the Head. 

At a deeper level the Christian ascetic 
will renounce created good because in it he 
has caught sight of the image of God which 
it reflects. He must turn from the mirror 
because of what he has seen in it. He desires 
the substance, not the shadow, the object and

Dear Editor: 

. . When I came to the Mount in August 
of last year, I was a small puppy. Since then 
I have grown quite a bit. As a matter of fact, 
I have grown so much that it has become 
quite a problem to me. 

When I get up in the morning, my 

feet hurt. When I visit my friend Blackie 

and romp across the lawns, I become so 

breathless and my fe<-t ache so much that 

I have to stop to lie down to rest. And 

what is even worse, my humans lau;h at me. 

My problem happens to some puppies 

when they come to college. I'm overweight, 

and like overweight humans, my feet hurt 

The trouble is that I have twice as many 

feet to hurt when the) get tired of carrying 

me around all day.

Honor Questionnaire Tells Truth 
About Success of Present System 

Following is a result of the Honor Sys- 
tem questionnaire administered to a cross- 
section of Mount students (see editorial, pg. 4) 

Do you think that some girls at the Mount 
are just "using" the Honor System for the 
privileges it gives . . . and oppose any form 
of enforcement? 

A. Yes 81 No 117 No answer 6. 
Q. Do you feel that the Mount students are 
mature enough to accept the responsibility, 
individually and as a student body, of observ- 
ing and enforcing the necessary rules and 
standards of the college? 

A. Yes 188 No 14 No answer 2. 

Q. Do you understand that enforcement of 
necessary rules under an Honor System rests 
with the individual student? 

A. Yes 201 No 1 No answer 2. 

Q. Do you feel that this enforcement should 
rest with each individual student or with a 
group of students elected by the student body 
to do this job? 

A. a) Student 145 b) Group 50 c) Both 8 
d) No answer 1 . 

Q. If you were aware that you had dis- 
obeyed a set rule, would you report yourself 
to a committee representing the student body? 

A. Yes 54 No 137 No answer 13. 

Q. Do you think that students themselves 
can enforce effectively rules concerning park- 
ing and smoking? 

A. Yes 121 No 82 No answer 1. 

Q. Would you prefer to have more definite 
means of enforcing the school rules than there 
are now? 

A. Yes 76 No 122 No answer 6. 

Q. In most cases of cheating would you 
approach the student offender and attempt 
to talk to her? 

A. Yes 80 No 115 No answer 9. 

Q. Have you personally ever seen cheating 
going on at the Mount? 

A. Yes 63 No 139 No answer 0. 

Detachment . . ♦

not the image. Once having caught the reflec- 
tion, his heart is stolen away. 

In all his renunciation there is implied 
no condemnation, but a preference is ex- 
pressed. It is not that he loves things less 
but that he desires God more. To the ex- 
tent that renunciation of the one will more 
surely lead him to the other, to that ex- 
tent -he renounces. In this he becomes like 
his Master. 

Despite the completeness of his detach- 
ment from the world, nowhere can we detect 
in Our Savior even a suspicion of dislike or 
aversion. Sinners came readily to Him pre- 
cisely because they saw in Him the living 
proof that it is possible to live in the higher 
world without denying the lower one. Such 
is the warm detachment that we hope to 
achieve by our Lenten exercises. 

— Father O'Reilly 

Q. Have you personally ever approached 
a Mount student on this subject? 

A. Yes 25 No 179. 

Q. Have you personally ever "reported" a 
Mount student? 

A. Yes 4 No 200. 

Q. Do you yourself, realizing the respon- 
sibilities involved, want to live under an Hon- 
or System at the Mount? 

A. Yes 193 No 8 No answer 3. 

Q. Do you think that the present Honor 
System at the Mount is workable? 

A. Definite yes 144 Qualified yes 13 Def- 
inite no 40 Didn't know 7.

personal responsibility under the honor sys- 
tem. But the majority of students are not 
affected to any great extent by the oppor- 
tunities student government offers. Perhaps 
student government is justified by the affect 
it has on the few. 

Legislative System 

But if this effect on the few is not a 
justification for student government, it 
should either be abolished or a better prac- 
tical system should be devised. A possible 
solution to the problem was raised by some 
members of the student body who suggest- 
ed that a legislative system of student gov-, 
ernment replace our present system. A legis- 
lative system would extend the actual func- 
tions of government to a greater number 
of students. Under this system, an expand- 
ed coordinating council, composed of club 
presidents, student body social chairman, 
student body publicity chairman, and Pi 
Theta Mu president, would organize all ac- 
tivities. A legislative body made up of 10 
representatives from each class would pass 
policy issues (for example: nuclear testing, 
voter's rights, migrant workers), legislate 
on money matters, and handle on-campus 
problems. An executive body, including the 
NSA Coordinator and the View Editor 
would act as an advisory body, suggesting 
legislation and providing a liaison group 
between the students and the administration. 

Majority Rule 

In this system, student government activ- 
ities would not be planned by an isolated stu- 
dent council trying to surmise the ideas of 
an unresponsive majority. The ideas of many 
students would be incorporated into the actual 
structure of government. If the students par- 
ticipating could diffuse their ideas to the stu- 
dents they represent and learn new ideas from 
them, student government could function 
more as it should — by and for the majority 
of students. In this way the theoretical justi- 
fication for student government might become 
a practical, and true, justification. 






GR. 3-4287 

SB President Stresses 
More Student Participation 

Dear Editor, 

In a letter to the editor in 
the last issue of the View, a 
student said that she didn't 
think the student body should 
have taken a stand on Nuclear 
Testing because no one cares 
about our opinion, anyway. 
Maybe this is true. But it's 
also true that we're living in 
a democratic society and the 
decisions of our government 
are based to some extent on 
the opinion of the people. So 
someone's opinion is going to 
be influential. It could be that 
our opinion, when added to 
other opinions in the samn di- 
rection, will be influential. In 
this sense, there's only a 
chance that our opinion will 
mean something. But taking 
the chance seems better than 
making a premature judgment 
about being ineffective as an 
excuse for doing nothing. 

When the student wri'in.; 
the letter to the editor 
stated that it was because 
our opinion didn't mean any- 
thing that we shouldn't haze 
takei.i a stand, I think she 
was disregarding the major 
purpose of the discussion. 
Student Council, in setting 
down its goals for this year, 
decided that student govern- 
ment should function prim- 
arily as a means of educa- 
tion for the student. We fell 
that through student gov- 
ernment a student could 
learn how to participate in 
the democratic process by 
seeing how an issue was 
brought before a group for 
discussion, by learning to 
evaluate pros and cons of 
arguments presented in a 
parliamentary discussion, bv 
realizing how effective a 
well-statcil opinion could be 
in a large group, and by 
having to think quickly 
enough to make a decision 
and vote on a question in 
a very short time. 

This was the real purpose 
of discussion at student body 
meetings. The question of tak- 
ing a stand on Nuclear Test- 
ing was chosen arbitrarily be- 
cause it was an issue that was 

deep enough and important 
enough to make everyone 
think. It was also controver- 
sial enough to allow students 
to take a position which iey 
would have to defend to the 

If the student who wrote 
the letter in the View 
and others who objected to 
the discussion had under- 
stood the democratic pro- 
cess, they could have exer- 
cised their rights by coming 
to the student body meeting 
and moving that the issue 
not be considered. If they 
were in a majority it would 
have been dropped, ffiut as 
long as students refuse to 
express a dissenting opin- 
ion, they can't expect the 
group to listen to them or 
conform to their ideas.

Mount Students Give A Serious 
View of Soupy Sales' TV Show 


For quite a few months 
there has been a trend raging 
through nearly every institu- 
tion of higher learning in 
Southern California. It begnn 
ir: the kindergartens and 
grammar schools and grad- 
uated to the high schools. It 
Las even worked its way into 
the home, office, or wherever 
you happen to be at 5:30 p.m. 
Monday through Friday. 

You guessed it — Soupy 
Sales. His afternoon television 
show has been transformed 
from an insignificant "kiddies" 
program into a "must" for 
teenagers and a "tension- 
reliever" for adults. 

Now, as with all fads or 
trends, a controversy has 
■n. Why do people watch 
Soupy Sales? Why do they 
laugh at him? What has he 
got that hundreds of other 
afternoon television programs 
haven't? These are a few of 
the questions the View staff 
has posed to various members 
of Mount Saint Mary's stu- 
dent body in order that you 
nay learn how this trend runs 
through our tchool. 

The following are some of 
the Mount students' comments 
on these onestions: 

Donna Grove watches Sou-py 
whenever she can (ybout four 
times a week) because "it 
gives me a chance to relax and 
iaugh after classes all day. I 
liice to see people get pies in 
the face". 

Jo Ann Pinto sees the pro- 
gram occasionally to "get 
away from problems. It makes 
me forget the bad things of 
life . . . it's 3o ridiculous . . 
actually he's a nut". 

A loyal "every night" Soupy 
fan is Chris Kress who says. 
"I love subtlety he's so subtly 
obvious that I don't have to

think. It's just put before me 
and I never know what he's 
going to do". 

The program gives Mary 
Lou O'Brien something to do 
while waiting to go to dinner. 

Sue Jurasek has an original 
n-ason for enjoying Soupy. 
She watches him every night 
except Friday because "be re- 
lieves my frustrations — throw- 
ing things I can't throw." 

Lizanne Murphy and Miohele 
Hansen, who see the program 
about two or three times a 
week, agree in their admira- 
tion of Soupy and affection for 
Pookie (Soupy's lion) and 
White Fang (one of Soupy's 

Linda Rose watches Soupy 
simply because she likes some- 
thing stupid when she is tired 
or doesn't feel well. 

JoAnn Carter presents an 
interesting view. "Soupy Sales 
is a nut. He must be, literally, 
in order to be able to portray 
this type of character on TV. 
Sure. I guess his shows are 
amusing for Little kids because

VIEW Questionaires 
Draw Mixed Reactions 

By Toni Christiansen 
Of the several hundred ques-

from faculty members. The re- 
sults therefore do not reflect 
the major-it) opinion of the 
Student body.

Tins theme was carried on 
in the advice given for im-

demning him entirely, but if 
he becomes the national idol 
lie is fast becoming, I think 
that it shows a very low de- 
gree of mentality among this 
generation, especially among 
the college crowd". 

"Words of Wisdom" come 
also from Maggie Murphy. "I 
can't understand this sudden 
mania of college students for 
Soupy Sales' show. As a 
whole I feel that he's rather 
childish. This is not to say 
that he isn't funny; sometimes 
he is. But his humor is cer- 
tainly not of a higher type". 

We close with Betsy Dicker- 
son's scorching opinion of 
Soupy Sales. Conclusions are 
to be drawn by the reader. In 
i»y opinion the Soupy Sales 
show is the most assinine dis- 
play of humor to be shown on 
television since Marshal 
ICGUN, the kiddies' cartoon de- 
light, reached prominence. It 
is completely slapstick with its 
standard staple of pie-in-face 
jokes and trite sayings that 
purport to be "Words of Wis- 
dom?' but are actually un- 
original paraphrases of old 
proverbs. Soupy may be trying 
to be a modern one-man ver- 
sion of Laurel and Hardy, but 
what he seems to be forgetting 
is that they flung their pies 
with finesse and gentle humor 
which Soupy and Frank Sina- 
tra have vet to master."

By Mikie Simon 

You've seen her sweeping 
floors and dusting shelves in 
the library, but did you know 
that she's a celebrity? She's 
one of the funniest, most en- 
ergetic additions to our li- 
brary, including our Robert 
Benchley books. She's the 
friendly face who sweeps you 
gently down the stairs when 
you're on your way to the 
stacks, and we'd like to intro- 
duce you to her — Frankie 

Frankie, who seems to as- 
sociate life with enthusiasm, 
recently asted Sister Cather- 
ine Anita to say a few prayers 
that she would win the Queen 
Contest in her parish. Appar- 
ently Sister spread the worJ 
and the prayers went straight 
up, for Frankie is now the 
Queen of Usher Board No. 2 
for '62 of Southern Mission- 
ary Baptist Church. 

Ask her how she won the 
title and she'll be the first to 
tell you it was mainly fun. 
Then ask her how she raised 
the large amount of money to 
win the contest and you won't 
believe her ingenuity. A birth- 
day rally was one of the de- 
vices she used; but the great- 
est idea was a lemon squeeze. 
Talk about clever ways to get 
money; listen to this. First 
step: pay five cents for every 
seed in the lemon; then 
squeeze the lemon, make lem- 
onade and sell it — at five cents 
a glass naturally. We could 
use such an organizer on our 
building fund committee. 

For two months Frankie 
raised money for the church 
and on March 18 the title aid 
the crown that went with it 
were presented. Frankie said 
it was the most nervous mom- 
ent of her life and she felt 
all "jumpy." And it didn't 
calm her any when Reverend 
Keys, her pastor, said her op- 
ponent had won the contest, 
just to test Frankie's reaction. 
But when Reverend Keys told 
her she actually had won the 

crown, you need only see her 
vivacious face to know how 
excited she was. In spite of 
her excitement, she vas con- 
fident about the contest all 
along, for as she said: "I 
couldn't lose, 'cause I've got 
the whole of Mount St. Mary's 
behind me." 

Frankie's the best thing to 
hit the Mount in a long time. 
Besides being such a cheerful 
person to have around, si'e's 
the one who keeps the library 
looking so shiny. She's not a 
very noticeable person on 
campus, but when y:.u see that 
big shiny crown atop a beam- 
ing face, you'll know it's

Ballet Musical Achieves 
Some Greatness— Almost 

Roland Petit's "Black 
Tights" Paris-filmed dance- 
musical, combines the talents 
of Zizi Jeanmaire, Cyd Charis- 
se, Moira Shearer, Maurice- 
Chevalier, and Petit to produce 
an effect which seems, some- 
how, insignificant. 

"Black Tights" is composed 
of four ballet sequences: "The 
Diamond Cruncher" (Jean- 
niaire) ; "Cyrano de Bergerac" 
(Shearer and Petit) ; "A Merry 
Mourning" (Charisse and Pe- 
tit), and "Carmen" (Jean- 
maire and Petit). All four se- 
quences are linked by the mar- 
i alive of Chevalier. 

In the first sequence, "The 
Diamond Cruncher", Jean- 
maire zips through the 
streets of Paris in a gay 
and colorful, though point- 
less, story of a girl who has 
an affinity for eating dia- 
monds. The second perfor- 
mance, the overworked 
"Cyrano", drags hopelessly 
in places. Although, on the 
whole, it is well-done, the 
dancers usually fail to bring 
forth the pathos and real 
meaning of the story. In 
many instances actions are 
wooden, almost mechanical. 
"A Merry Mourning" is, like 
"The Diamond Cruncher", gay, 
meaningless, except, perhaps, 
for the sly, shopworn, and 
rather dubious attempt to point 
out that every woman is, at 
heart, a courtesan. "Mourning" 
is perhaps the most colorful 
sequence in the mo^'ie; it is 

also the liveliest, although one 
wonders why the final scene, 
which bogs down considerably, 
was not cut. 

"Carmen" is, without doubt, 
the best of the movie's four se- 
quences. It is danced brilliant- 
ly, in places, by Jeanmaire and 
Petit to Bizet's gieat music. It 
is unfortunate, however, that 
because of his occasional bril- 
liance, defects which might 
otherwise go unnoticed stand 
out like a one-legged ballerina. 
Hand movements are often 
j wooden and awkward ; scenes 
I are dragged out interminably. 
| Several of these scenes re- 
minded the viewer of silent 
movies with their choppy, 
speeded-up actions). On the 
whole, however, the dancers 
rianage to capture "Carmen's" 

Perhaps the mam diffi- 
culty in the picture as a 
whole is that it is a cross 
between classical ballet and 
modern dance. In spots, i.e., 
certain scenes ii* "Carmen", 
Ihe effect is good if not 
great; in general, however, 
the effect is fair, if not poor. 
In some scenes there is too 
much acting; in others, there 
is not enough. Maurice Che- 
valier, while always endear- 
ing, is unnecessary, an ex- 
plainer of something which 
should need no explanation. 
At some times "Black 
Tights" almost achieves 
greatness — but it is always 
"almost". M.E. 

Old Vic Comes to LA. 
n Three -Week Showing 

The historic Old Vic Company of London — which some- 
one once described as Eng. Lit. in the flesh — is coming to 
Los Angeles, April 17, for a three-week engagement at the 
Orpheum Theatre. 

The celebrated troupe — whose alumni include Lawrence 
Olixier, Alec Guinness, Vivien Leigh and Ralph Richardson — 
will perform Bernard Sli;n\ 's "Saint Joan," April 17-21, and 
Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," April 23-28, and "Macbeth." 
April 30-May 5. 

"Saint Joan," which contains one of the greatest trial 
scenes in all dramatic literature, stars Barbara Jefford as 
Joan, John Clements as the Earl of Warwick, and William 
Sylvester as Dunois, the Bastard of Orleans. 

Sylvester, a native of Oakland, is the only American 
actor to become an Old Vic member in its 144-year history. 

Clements and Miss Jefford will also portray Macbeth 
and Lady Macbeth. John Stride and Joanna Dunham will 
play Romeo and Juliet. Miss Dunham was recently voted Eng- 
land's most promising actress in a national poll.

Leadership Conference Solves No Problems 

On March 10, Mount representatives attended an intercolegiate leader-

government and apathy; freshman orientation; sororities and fraternities; 
Catholic colleges as a community; the Catholic college student and authority; 
drinking: Loyola Homecoming. 

in regard to apathy on campus, it was decided, first of all, that it 
existed : also that fewer activities with greater participation in these few is 
needed. It was stated that these activities should be based on student interest, 
and it was suggested that an interest poll be taken at the beginning of 
each year. 

Freshman Orientation 
<■ discussion of sororities and fraternities shed no new light on the 
topic, conclusions being timeworn and vague. These included such statements 
a- : a) the sororities and fraternities haven't lost sight of their social obli- 
gations (?); and, b) the sororities and fraternities perform a service indirect- 
ly hy developing leadership among their members, etc. 

College Community 

In regard to the college community, few were surprised to find that 
this college community consisted in a group of Catholic college students "each 
attending his own respective school, but also taking part in intercollegiate 

affairs," including those on the spiritual, intellectual, and social levels. Each 
of these levels were discussed, and all agreed that everybody should support 
everybody else's intercollegiate activities. 

It was decided, also, that in the realm of authority, there should be 
both "give and take;" better communications between faculty and student 
will usually lead to student acceptance of justified school authority. 

In regard to drinking, it was concluded, first of all, that "it is here 
to stay." Also pointed out was the fact that the college student of today is 
more mature towards drink than was the collegiate of prohibition days. It 
was stated, however, that a definite improvement of attitudes is needed and 
that there should be greater orientation to drinking and its problems. 


The problem of Loyola's Homecoming was also brought up, and it 
was decided that "something should be worked out to improve the parade;" 
for instance, the rally could be big enough to substitute for it. 

In general, Loyola's leadership conference proved to be an interesting 
experiment in trying to hit as many problems as possible while by-passing 
solutions — or perhaps it was merely an inability to deal with or a blindness 
to see the real problems. M.E. 




to flowers 

Do flowers talk? Cindy knows they 
do. In a quiet, friendly way they say 
— Hello ! We're here. The older sho 
gets, the more Cindy will discover 
companionship, and wonder, in 
things that grow. 

Gardeners understand this feeling 
best. They've worked their fingers in 
warm, musky soil. Watched a shoot 
catch its first sight of day. 

Standard has been gardening, too, 
for over 30 years. Today our ORTHO 
Division makes 60 products to help 
gardens grow better, more easily, all 
over the world. 

To give a lawn that luxurious look. 
Help a tree wear its mantle more 
proudly. Or coax a cascade of blooms 
from a rosebush. 

Standard's gardener-scientists never 
stop looking for better ways to 
nourish and protect your garden. 
In laboratory and test plots they're 
searching, experimenting, proving. 

Out of this research have come many 
gardening "firsts," which you can 
share by reading the ORTHO Lawn 
and Garden Book, available at 
garden supply stores. 

At Standard we're interested in every- 
thing that grows . . . whether it's a 
hillside's bright blanket of flowers, or 
one proud plant in a window box.

Sharon Bowen Leads 
Student Government 

Once again student body 
elections have been held and 
Mounties welcome their of- 
ficers for 1962-63. Elections 
on May 4 gave Sharon Bowen 
the presidency of the student 
body. Working with Sharon as 
student body officers are Lynn 
Albizati, Kathy Baker, Pat 
Smith and Maureen Crean. 


Sharon Bowen, a sophomore 
nursing major, commented: 
"Many people on this campus 
have achieved very great 
things this year through their 
own talents; for example, our 
music students or writers. In 
this election I have had the 
very unique and over-whelming 

experience of having others 
give their time and efforts to 
help me achieve. This concern 
oi other students is what has 
made being elected student 
body president meaningful for 


The new student body vice- 
president is Lynn Albizati. 
"In accepting the office of 
student body vice-president, I 
teajize that I am being en- 
trusted with the responsibility 
of coordinating the myriad of 
activities which takes place on 
our campus. It is a challenging 
job, more so next year beause 
of the new form of student 
government which we are pio-

Student Scholarship 
Faculty Fellowship 

Sister Rose Catherine of the 
Mount history department has 
received the John R. Haynes 
and Dora Haynes Fellowship in 
History for 1962-63 at UCLA. 
The fellowship, worth $2500, 
will enable Sister Rose Cathe- 
rine to devote full time to re- 
writing her doctoral disserta- 
tion which was destroyed in 
the fire. 

A one year scholarship to 
the Juilliard School of Music 
in New York City has been 
awarded to Mount student Eli 
Hollander. Eli, a freshman 
music major, received the 
Naumburg Scholarship which 
is renewable every year. He 
auditioned for the scholarship 
in Los Angeles on April 16 
and will begin his studies at 
Juilliard in September. 

neering. I hope to make Co- 
ordinating Council an effective 
hody in regulating student 
activity, and directing it to- 
ward the forming of a com- 
plete and vibrant student com- 
munity. Since this is our com- 
mon purpose I am depending 
on each student's efforts to 
make next year as rewarding 
as it promises to be. Thank 
you for your trust in me," 
Lynn said. 


Kathy Baker will take over 
the duties of student body 
secretary. "As student body 
secretary, I intend to do my 
best to enforce the new con- 
stitutional system at Mount 
St. Mary's College. I realize 
that this, as well as any exe- 
cutive position, entails respon- 
sibility, and I am prepared to 
accept the responsibility," 
Kathy stated. 


Next year Pat Smith will 
act as student body treasurer. 
"In accepting the office of 
student body treasurer, I'm 
accepting all the duties that 
our new constitution demands. 
I'll be supervising student body 
funds, submitting budgets, 
writing checks and tracking 
down dollars during next year's 
audit. I also get to autograph 
over 500 student body cards, 
giving special care and con- 
sideration to each one. Of 
course I realize that the stu- 
dent body treasurer is more 
than a list of duties. She is, 
first of all, a person who has 
committed herself to other 
people through student gov- 
ernment. Her obligations are 
not only pat and objective, but 
personal and . . . messy. In 
my new job I except to be 
firm, objective, vocal, and 
messy - with a great deal of 
care,' 1 Pat commented. 

Mount social activities will 
be under the direction of Mau- 
reen Crean. "I would like to 
thank the student body for 
placing their confidence in me 
by electing me social chairman. 
Now that the elections are over 
I hope that the students and 
their representatives will unite 
and begin again to work for 
the betterment of Mount St. 
Mary's. And we shall be a3

all people upon us," Maureea

If we thought that once the 
sun had set this evening it 
would never come up again we 
would put aside every activity 
and go out to enjoy the 
warmth and light for the last 
time. Very likely we would 
completely lose our balance in 
an orgy of sun-worshipping. 
But as evening drew near and 
the shadows lengthened the 
joy would turn to sadness. 
Tears would start to many an 
eye and with a heavy heart we 
would follow the great orb as 
it sank into the western sea.

Drinking Policy 

(NOTE. This is a report issued 
by the administration and stu- 
dent council on the drinking 
policy of Mount St. Mary's.) 

A. Mount functions open to all 

1. On-Campus Dances 
There may be no drinking 
at functions on Mount St. 
Mary's campus. 

2. Off-Campus Dances 
Liquor may be served only 
to those over 21 years of 
age, at off-campus func- 
tions. Students who make 
arrangements for the 
dance are responsible for 
informing the establish- 
ment, where the function 
will be held, that liquor 
may be sold only to those 
students who have ID 
cards and that no student 
may buy a drink for an- 
other student. Students 
making arrangements for 
the dance are also respon- 
sible for contracting two 
security policemen who 
will double check ID's at 
any time. 

Bars in establishments 
contracted must be locat- 
ed in a room off the 
dance floor, but students 
who have purchased 
drinks may bring them 
back to the tables around 

rice floor. 
Whr-n liquor is furnished

' the sun will come burning up- 
ward from the east we relax 
today under its smile. We love 
the sun, but we won't lose our

take care of them and enjoy 
the sun too. It will be there to-

So with the entire world of 
matter and the needs of the 
body. Were we to think that 
they are destined to crumble 
and fade would we not during 
this short span of years put 
all else aside and give ourselves 
desperately to brief enjoy- 
ment? Would we not complete- 
ly lose our balance in one 
hectic whirl of delight? Then 
as the evening of life drew 
near and the shadows fell 

■ would we not look upon our 
failing bodies and the fading 

, light with a heavy heart? 
But knowing as we do the

the body of our Savior, being 
aware as we are of what this

and understanding as we ought

tion of all things in Christ, we 
relax in the world of matter 
and the body. We love them 
with a quiet attachment and 
a trembling expectation. We 
won't lose our heads. The love 
of created things is an integral 
part of a larger life of the 
spirit that reaches up into the 
life in God. No need for a 
pagan cult of beauty that must 
die. It will be there tomorrow, 
more gloriously.

According to The Record . . . 

The Nursing Department received a three-year grant of 
$5,000 from the National Advisory Health Council of the De- 
partment of Health, Education and Welfare. The grant, for 
mental health research, is a renewal of the one the Mount has 
received since 1957, but it represents an increase of $5,000 
annually. Sister Richard Joseph, departmental chairman, said 
the grant will strengthen the nursing program by allowing 
greater integration of mental health concepts in studies. "The 
grant will enable the Mount to add an additional faculty 
member prepared in maternal-child nursing with mental health 

preparation during the junior 

year," she said. [mentator for this department's

Jonnie s Play 


Because she had something 
to say, Jonnie Patricia Mobley 
wrote the play "We Just Love 
Uncle Ross." 

Jonnie. a senior English ma- 
jor at the Mount, wrote the 
play last year in Drama 107. 
She likes to write dialogue and 
had written many plays and 
skits before, including an "old- 
time morality play" while in 
the seventh grade. Jonnie has 
also written a murder story 
in radio script form which was 
performed on radio, the dia- 
logue and lyrics for a musical 
comedy, and several other 
short plays. 

Jonnie was thrilled when 

Mr. O'Keefe chose her play to 

J be presented during the Art 

Festival and is quite satisfied 

with the cast he has chosen. 

Jonnie is presently working 
on a romantic novel in which 
she also has something to say. 
She has been working on it 
' for two years and doesn't know 
when it will be finished as she 
has no deadlines to meet. 

Summer is icumen in etc. 
There are only a few more 
weeks until finals, and na- 
turally the calendar is packed 
with activities, meetings, 
dances, elections for every- 
thing, graduation, and pre- 
registration for those of us 
fortunate enough to return 
next fall. 

Since the Fine Arts Festival 
is advertised elsewhere, we 
will only say — be sure and at- 

Here are a few items to add 
to your social list: a reminder 
that San Fernando Valley 
Slate is sponsoring a Dickens

always a drawing card. Fur- 
ther information is available

is producing Carousel, May 17,

Here's an idea for those in- 
terested in drama, as well as 
those who don't have any work 
for this coming summer: the 
Pasadena Playhouse is spon- 
soring a program called Sum- 
mer Talent Finder. They are

worth $850.00. If you are in-

Instructor for four years in

I "to broaden their cultural hor- 
I izons." For example, the Mar- 
ian Art Club sponsored visits 
to see a primitive art show, 
i a furniture exhibition, and sev- 
eral foreign films. So, the stu- 
dent is not limited to the class- 
room but "finds art out of the 
strictly visual realm." 
Outside or Inside 
It is difficult to say that Mr. 
Cressey has "outside interests" 
because they have an "inside" 
quality. He appreciates almost 
all music and enjoys skin div- 
ing and surfing. His sculpture 
studio consumes much of his 

As an artist, teacher and 
"liver," Mr. Cressey sees that 
each era has its own lan- 
guage. The language of con- 
temporary art says that there 
is "no looking or living in the 
past, that as soon as art 
stands still or ignores the 
avant-garde, it dies."

Three Short Plays Give 
Varied Views of Life . . . 

Dr. Doran's Work Played at Student Recitals 

Busy preparing several note- 
worthy events to 3 presented 
at the annual Fine Arts Fes- 
tival is the Mount St. Mary's 
Music Department. 

two vocal selections, a flute 
solo, and a flute duet are slated 
for this event, put on entirely 
by the members of SAI. 
The annual Composers Sym 

In keeping with this year's posium has been scheduled for 

Festival's objective of "more 
student production and parti- 
cipation." the Music Depart- 
ment has slated two student 
recitals on Wednesday, May 9, 
third day of the Festival. 

At 1 p.m. in the Little The- 
ater a program specializing in 
contemporary pieces, by Mioux 
and other artists, will be held. 
Mary Glasser, pianist and 
graduating senior, will perform 
in this field. Of special inter- 
est at this recital will be two 
compositions written by Mount 
faculty member Dr. Matt 

The second recital on 
Wednesday, sponsored by Sig- 
ma Alpha Iota, national Music 
fraternity, will be presented 
at 4 p.m. in the Little Theater. 
Contemporary music featuring 

Saturday, May 12. Selections 
by Dr. Doran can also be en- 
joyed at this concert along 
with a flute, piano, french 
horn, and cello quartette fea- 
turing Selene Hurford and 

Charles Dimon. This con- 
cert will be a combination of 
students and professional mu- 
sicians and will present Peter 
Korn as guest speaker. 

Many hours of work and 
preparation have been put into 
these coming recitals by mu- 
sic faculty and students alike. 

The View encourages all stu- 
dents to attend and enjoy these 
student presentations. 

MASQUERS, Mandy Cuajunco, Donna Grove (standing), Betsy 
Dickerson, Cdrol Clem, and Jackie Petras (sitting) discuss the fine 
points cf tr.e play Early Frost. 

Theater goers will find a 
place in the Art Festival too. 
On the nights of May 8, 10. 
and 12, the Masquers will pre- 
sent three short plays. Each 
play is individual and enjoy- 


The Masquers will produce 
their first original play for the 
Fine Arts Festival, Jonnie Pa- 
1 Mobley's We Just Love 
Uncle Ross. This short play is 
a drawing-room drama con- 
cerned with the middle class 
value system. The time and 
place is anytime, USA. The 
problem: what happens when 
a naive and emotionally imma- 
ture person is faced with a 
real crisis. 

The characters are stereo- 
types of the situation. They 
are believabJy and naturally 
portrayed by Mary Couture, 
1 McRae, and Tane Kob- 

-f -11 \si: 

Combining lighting, sound, 
and music, Douglas Part- 
's EarN I r..s( creates a 

startling effect. Fortunately 
unbelievable characters find 
themselves in an equally un- 
believable situation. 

In a dark, rain-soaked attic, 
Jackie Petras, Donna Grove, 
Carol Clem, Mandy Cuajunco, 
and Betsy Dickerson venture 
into the unknown and leave 
the audience on the edges of 
their seats. 


In antithesis to the two 
other plays, Eugene Ionesco's 
The Bald Soprano is an absurd 
commentary on the manners 

of our times. Maggie Conley, 
Mary Jo Theiss, Tane Kob- 
lick, Carmen Tajada, Frank 
Dionne, and Frank Kilman con- 
verse in an inconsequential 
manner about inconsequential 
things. While laughing at the 
ambiguous finger pointing at 
the actors, the audience will 
be laughing at itself. 

These three plays will be 
presented in the Little The- 
on May 8, 10, and 12 at 
8:15 p.m.

A 'First' During Art Week 

Besides the newness of the 
whole idea of an Art Festival 
Week, the English department 
plans to present an exhibit 
never before tried here at the 
Mount. This "exhibit" actually 
consists of six groups of Eng- 
lish majors giving recitals on 
singular aspects of authors, 
writing techniques, and books. 

The groups will be perform- 
ing three to four times during 
the afternoon of May 9 so that

Wednesday, May 23, 1962 


Mount St. Mary's College has 
entered the race for SPACE! 
Not to be outdone by the 
Federal government, the 
Mount is not, however, send- 
ing any ballistic missiles or 
troublesome students into the 
air, but is concentrating on 
more earthly needs. 

The Mount's SPACE Pro- 
gram is a $10 million develop- 
ment maslerplan designed to 
meet top priority academic 
and physical needs of its two 

Currently displayed in the library is the suggested future 
Mount campus, showing the restored convent and fine arts 
building and the projected auditorium, faculty-student center 

and classroom building, and parking lot on the upper portion 
of the campus. The plans are proposed by Barker and Off, 

Mount Lauds Our Lady 
At Marys Day Fete 

Our Lady was the center of 
attention today at the Mount, 
as classes were cancelled to 
celebrate Mary's Day. Mary's 
Day is a comparatively new 
tradition at the Mount and is 
organized by the Sodality, 
Y.C.S. and C.C.D. Ail students 
and their mothers are invited 
to attend. 

The day began with Mass at 
9 a.m., said by Father James 
O'Reilly, chaplain, and sung 
by the student body. A brunch 
followed Mass, with mothers 
and daughters being served in 
the dining room. At this time 
the Sodality thanked Father 
O'Reilly, Sister Margaret 
Clare, and Sister Paulanue for 
their help in planning the day. 

One of the most beautiful 
events of the day was the in- 
stallation of Sodality officers 
in Mary Chapel. As part of 
this ceremony the new Soda- 
lity members made their Act 
of Consecration and the old 
members made a renewal. 
Nancy Reilly, Georgia Mason, 
and Carol Bingenheimer have 
joined the ranks of Sodalists 

at the Mount. 

In the procession from the 
chapel to Our Lady's statue in 
the circle, Isa Ashdown and 
other YC.S. members led the 
way. Next in the procession 
were the little bearers, Mariel 
Price and Pat Eady, new and 
old C.C.D. chairmen. The most 
noticeable group in the whole 
procession were the Senior 
nurses, proudly sporting their 
new uniforms. 

In the circle, Y.C.S. repre- 
sentatives Mary Lou Hamill 
and Toni Turner crowned Our 
Lady with a lei, and in the 
chapel, Margaret King and 
Janet Olimski did the honors. 

Several groups worked to- 
gether to organize Mary's Day. 
Chairmen of the groups are: 
Anne Dietz, Pi Theta Mu, hos- 
tess; Louise Holtz, decora- 
tions; Esther Ramirez, Sister 
Miriam Joseph and the choir, 
music ; Isa Ashdown, proces- 
sion; Sharon Rusinyak and 
Betsy Dickerson, publicity; 
Marianne Portl, brunch ; Nancy 
Reilly and Eileen Murphy, 
Program Committee. 

This final issue of the pa- 
per was put out by the new 
VIEW staff for the coming 
year 1962-63.

■ campuses. The word SPACE 
is an appropriate one, as it 
[stands for "Scholastic and 
Physical Advancement Center- 
ed on Excellence/' 

The SPACE Program has a 
I target of $10 million to 
I achieve the top objectives, 
i While the sum may seem am- 
I bitious, the Mount believes 
that it is a reasonable goal in 
view of continued academic 
and concurrent physical needs 
and the broadening scope of 
educational activities. 

Wishing to find out more 
about these needs, we inter- 
viewed Sister Rebecca who 
told us, "The disastrous fire 
; last fall, in addition to the 
1 establishment of the new 
Downtown Campus in Chester 
Place on a full-time basis bo- 
ginning this September, have 
only accentuated the needs of 
the Mount." And when we 
heard just what these needs 
are, we could well see the 
necessity of a Mount SPACE 

Financial Needs 

The Mount's pressing aca- 
demic needs lie principally in 
the following areas and amount 
to $5 million: student scholar- 
ships, departmental grants, fa- 
culty salaries, research grants 
and endowment of faculty 
chairs. The physical needs 
likewise amount to $5 million 
and breakdown into these cate- 
gories: $2 million for new 
classroom building with faculty 
student center and furnishings; 
major parking area on the up- 
per Mount campus for sev- 
eral hundred cars; extra fund 
lor reconstruction of Fine Arts 
building lot covered by fire 
insurance; $2 million for resi- 
dence hall and classroom 
building at the Downtown 
Campus, including furnishings 
and other improvements in- 
volving the Doheny complex; 
SI million for new auditorium 
and furnishings at the Mount 

Although the goal of the 
Program is tremendous, there 
has been no deadline set. But 
being a little skeptical of this 
long-range program, we ques- 
tioned Sister Rebecca who ex- 
pressed the Mount's view on 
this point. She told us that 
'The philosophy of the Mount 
regarding the SPACE Program 
is that no yearly quotas will 
be established and no pres- 
sures applied to either indivi- 
duals or groups in attempting 
to achieve goaU. Through 
special gifts from friends and 
alumnae and the help of 
foundations, the Mount be- 
lieves that the goals can be 
reached in an orderly and in- 
telligible way." 

As in our national SPACE 
race, Sister realizes that in- 
terest in the project is of 
greatest importance, and be- 
lieves that the Program will 
succeed if all groups interest- 
ed in the Mount — the Admini- 
stration, Faculty, Advisory 
Board, the Guild, Father's 
Club, the Student Body, and 
the Alumnae Association- 
know both the aims and the 
needs which will be cons' 
for many years.

Pago Three 

Class Officers Elected 

Tension ran high last Wednesday as sophomores, juniors, 
and seniors elected their class officers. Though the campaign- 
ing for class elections was not as intense nor as well-publicized 
as for the student body elections, there was still a great deal 
of excitement and class spirit shown in the elections. With our 
new form of government, the elections covered a wider scope 
this year, enabling ten more girls in each class to participate 
in student government on the legislature. 

Election results were announced last Thursday. They are 
as follows: Senior Class President, Judy Schweiger; Vice- 
president, Judy Bleak; Secretary, Marian Menges; Treasurer, 
Bobbi Dumniel; Social Chairman, Peggy Carr. 

Senior Legislature

Carole Cook, Kattay Her- 
man, Helen Jaskoski, Pat 
Kirk, Sheila Sausse, Rose- 
mary Strano, Pat Thomp-' 
son, and Judy White. 

Junior Class President, In- 
grid Jacobson ; Vice-president, 
Jane Luecke. As of this date 
the other officers have not 
been chosen. 

Junior Legislature 

Mary Alice Alston, Hillair 
Bell, Carolyn Bock, Anne

Leaders Discuss NSA Controversy 

Below are two views on the con- 
troversial NSA - advocated student 
council action in regard to approving 
the stand taken by students in a 
Washington university. 


I realize that there has been 
a great deal of comment and 
concern about a recent deci- 
sion made by the Student 
Council on an NSA proposal. 

The proposal came in the 
form of a letter from NSA 
headquarters. It stated that a 
certain university in Washing- 
ton (state) had planned to 
have a Communist speaker on 
its campus. Along with the 
Communist speaker, an anti- 
communist speaker was to ap- 
pear. It further stated that 
because of "outside pressure" 

the university administration 
objected to having a Commu- 
nist speaker on campus, and 
that because of the administra- 
tion's interference in refusing 
the speaker, students' rights 
were being infringed upon. Be- 
lieving that to be an infringe- 
ment, NSA urged our Student 
Council to send letters of pro- 
test to the university showing

What Is a Lady? 

Fr. O'Reilly 

Not all who are called ladles are really such. There are 
pseudo-ladies and there are real ladies. The pseudo lady is such 
only so far as the eye can see - the hat, the gloves, the shoes; 
grooming and posture when out of doors; the dress, the grace, 
the charm when entertaining. It is in her manner when off guard 
or under stress that the differences show. Then appear the tend- 
encies to coarse familiarity or hostile aloffness or cold indiffer- 
ence. Then all the clothes in Sachs will not cover the nakedness of 
her soul. Of what use is rt then if her body be fair, except to 
serve as a trap for some gluttonous male? She cannot be loved. 
Only the human person can be loved; the impersonality of this 
show-girl type cannot be loved. She may be sought after greatly, 
but that is because so often today's man takes this type for his 
erotic ideal since she cannot in her impersonality burden him with 
responsibility. What she "is" is less important to him than what 
she has". She on her part readily gives him what he wants to 
' have". And both part empty. She destroys a man. 

The real lady is such to the core. It isn't the dress that makes 
her. It is she who makes the dress.When a man meets a real 
lady he feels impelled to worship her. He almost fears to touch, 
and not out of any unchristian shrinking from the body, but be- 
cause in her presence he senses his poverty. In her he discovers 
that he is nothing. And yet, wonder of wonders, on her part 
the true lady cannot understand why he should regard her at 
all. Chivalry meets lowliness half way ,and both are filled. The 

mng of body is sublimited in the ecstacy of spirit. She

Such is Our Lady. You see her dressed in Palestinian clothes 
in garment, of Spain, as a lady of the French court, Bavarian 
maiden, an Irish peasant, a Chinese lady. But it she who makes 
the clothes, not they her. When God looked on her He loved 
what He had made. She on her part could only wonder that 
He should regard His handmaid. Through such a lady was man- 
kind blessed and heaven opened. She saves

From the Presidents... 

One of the purposes of a 
student government is to give 
students an opportunity to 
participate in the democratic 
process. We encourage stu- 
dents to be aware of issues, to 
form opinions and to take ac- 
tion. The purpose of such ac- 
tion is the more complete edu- 
cation of the student. 

It is possible that in the at- 
tempt to participate in student 
government, students may ini- 
tiate measures which are un- 
founded and illogical, and 
uhich stimulate only negative 
interest. Such interest is op- 
posed to the aims of student 
government and of education. 
It could have an effect similar 
to the fire which destroyed 
35% of our campus last 

In the coming year I will en- 
courage participation in stu- 
dent government and interest 
in campus and national issues. 
But I hope that this will be 
intelligent participation based 
on sincere interest and logical 
thinking. I hope we can become 
more aware of the aims of 
education and the role which 
student government plays in 
attaining these aims.

When Student Council met 
for the first time this year to 
set down its goals, we adopted 
by unanimous consent the 

"Lord, give me the serenity 
to accept the things I cannot 
change, the courage to change 
the things I can, and the wis- 
dom to know the difference."' j 

We adopted this prayer, not 
to be pietistic, but because we 
really believed in it. We still

It's the time for last meet- 
ings, farewell, banquets, and 
finals. While we tie up and 
finish the old semester, we 
also plan for the coming year 
with ths election of new offi- 
e e r s, pre-registration, and 
room reservations. 

Now also we must think of 
the View's role on the Mount 
campus. As a newspaper the 
( View is chiefly responsible for 
communication between the 
students themselves, the stu- 
; dents and the faculty, and the 
' students and those outside the 
college. This coitamunication in- 
cludes facts, opinions and 
thoughts. It is important that 
the View report more than the 
facts of coming events, inter- 
esting happenings and past oc- 
currences. It should investigate 
situations; it should reflect 
student opinion. 

The View cannot present 

opinion unless it knows how 

the students feel. Members of 

the View staff are aware of 

student feeling, but every 

Mountie can take a more active 

role in informing the View. By 

j writing letters of the editor and 

[approaching staff members 

with their problems and their 

opinions, the students can aid 

I the View in showing Mount 

life in its many forms — intel- 

lectual, social, religious. 

Outside of student body 
I meeings and bulletin boards, 
j there are few ways to reach 
! the student body to give in- 
formation, to discuss existing 
situations and. to bring up new 
issues. The View is available to 
the entire student body for 
such a purpose. It can be most 
effective if all Mounties, espe- 
cially student body, class and 
club officers, use the View to 
communicate with the student 

Since the View is the Mount's 
student newspaper, it should 
function to communicate in- 
formation to the students and 
to reflect student opinion. 


that we believed that the in- 
dividual rights of the students 
j be respected ; that they be a I- 

lowed to decide wliat they 

want for themselves. 

After NSA's plea was pres- 
I ented to our Student Council, 

we decided to vote on sending 

the requested letter of protest. 

A long, opinionated discussion 


The discussion was based 
partly on principles, partly on 
emotions; but in the final 
round the majority agreed to 
send the letter. I (and two 
other girls) dissented, for 
several reasons. 

Causes of Dissenlion 
First, I have never been 
personally assured of t h e 
standing of NSA. It represents 
a so-called "individualist move- 
ment", but collectivism policies 
and liberal bases ha*ve been 
elucidated in its promotion of 
such groups as the Sane Nu- 
clear Policy Commitee (Left- 
wing pacifists) and the Stu- 
dents for Disarmament. It 
was, in part, the t}uestiona>ble- 
ness of NSA's ideologies that 
helped foim my decision. 

Secondly, while I do believe 
in student freedom and aca- 
demic rights, I do not believe 
in license for inexperience and 
stupidity. Nor do I believe in 
exposing highly susceptible 
college students to a deluge of 
| subversive ideas. This would 
ihave been highly probable in 
a situations such as the one 

I n .Mined Statement 
Thirdly, | considers! the 
ambiguity of this particular 
NSA proposal. For example, 
»i hat were SC memiters to

supposed to have influenced

the pressure was financial— 
I but did if spring from public

Naturally, i respected the 
other SC members' opinions. 
They were just as correct in 
following their beliefs as I was

.... It was a sad day for posterity when Francoise 

McGillicuddy and Ilka Gooch met for the first time. It 
was when they were born. 

"We're Siamese twins," insinuated Francoise. 

We asked Ilka if this were true. 

"Shut up," she explained. 

We thought about that. We inquired why their 
names weren't the same. Francoise and Ilka continued 
insulting passersby. 

"I want you to know I have SEVERAL aliases," 
said Ilka, "I used to use Ernest Hemingway, but people 
here wouldn't want to call me Ernie. And then there 
was Helen Jaskoski, Richeline Slagh . . ." 

Francoise nudged her with the floor lamp. 

"Don't look now," she hissed, "but I think you gave 
something away." She looked sympathetic. "Well, she 
said, "I understand. Who'd want to be called Judy 

We scribbled furiously in our new journalism book. 
"How comes you two write 50-50," we queried. 

Ilka and Francoise were shocked at our impertin- 

Sniffed Ilka: "This is what happens when you shed 
the drape of anonymity." 

Said Francoise: "Pick up your drape and let's go." 

We begged them to stay. They graciously agreed 
for a half a Hershey bar. 

"Do the people on fifth floor Carondelet know 
who you really are ? "we ventured. 

In unison: "no-one (sob) knows the real us!" 

"How did you keep them from noticing?" 

Ilka looked secretive. 

"We lied," she crowed. 

Francoise assumed a faraway gaze. We fidgeted. 
She fixed us with a steely stare, and intoned in sep- 
ulchral tones: 

"We (expansive gesture) are writing a book. It's 
called 'How to Sit Down in the Shower.' We've worked 
on it for two years. It's an esoteric study or something." 

We gulped. We tremulously asked how it was they 
wrote 50-50 together? 

Well, I can't write a collaboration by myself, can 
I?" Ilka said testily. 

We supposed this was true. Then Francoise made 
us swear on our Buck Rogers baseball cards that we'd 
print something she'd always wanted to tell. 

"I was born in F-a-i-r-f-i-e-1-d, Ohio. Do you know 
how to spell Ohio?" 

We assured her we did. 

"There's no thrill like it." 

That was all they said. 

Except for one parting shot. 


NSA Controversy 

(Continued from Page 4) 
right. The majority also be- 
lieved that the students' needs 
in their education, and not 
outside pressure, should have 
been the determining factor in 
the decision of the adminis- 

In this situation, Communist 
ideas were to be presented. But 
they were to be presented, in 
the presence of a man whose 
riualifications and whose affil- 
iations are unquestionable. 
They were to be presented in 
an, educational institution of 
the United States where re- 
search information was readi- 
ly available. The members of 
Student Council who voted for 
the letter felt certain that the 
philosophical and practical er- 
rors of the Communist sys- 
tem, regardless of how insid- 
iously they were concealed, 
could not remain unexposed in 
the light of Dr. Schwarz's un- 
derstanding of both democra- 
cy and Communism. 

Constitutionally Student 
Council was within its rights 
in sending this letter. Perhaps 
the letter will be ineffective, 
maybe completely disregarded. 
But the two-hour expression 
and examination of ideas 
which preceeded the letter 
seems to me to make the ac- 
tion valuable and enlightening 
to the students who partici- 
pated in making the decision. 
Criticism has reached Student 
Council, INDIRECTLY, for 
the opinion they voiced. I 
would like to ask those stu- 
dents who are criticizing the 
action if they are really con- 
vinced of the principles of our 
democracy. If they are, why 
would they be afraid to hear 
a Communist speaker in a sim- 
ilar situation? If they do not 
understand democracy, per- 
haps a little exposure to the 
dedication of a Communist 
would make them re-examine 
their own obligations. 

Letter to the Editor 

Dear Editor:

the most students. This letter is in the way of a comment and 
a question on the attitude of students regarding the use of the

So much for the comments. 
Now for the questions Why 
is this kind of conduct not 
considered unjust and dishon- 
est? Persons taking things un- 
lawfully from the library feel 
no reason for returning them. 
Two recent examples prove 
this point. 

A stack of magazines which 
was given to a student teach- 
er to cut up for pictures had 
a library magazine among 
them. A book was returned 
with a card in it. by a student 
whose mother works in a pub- 

able and would not abuse the 
freedom given them (it is the 
easiest thing to walk out of 
the library with anything) but 
it seems we were wrong. Per- 
haps the answer is the placing 
of someone at the main door 
to check every briefcase, note- 
book and pile of books going 
out. This would certainly cur- 
tail freedom in and out of 
the library, slow up service, 
and make a 'Gestapo' atoms- 
phere we do not want and do 
not think should be necessary. 
The above situation affects 
rJie whole student body. Can 
you help u6?

Parnassians Accept 
Future's Challenge 


The loud affirmative re- 
sounding from room 104 last 
Monday was Parnassians' 
reply to the question, "To be 
or not to be." This was the 
problem facing Mount depart- 
mental clubs in the wake of 
current student government 
revamping. English devotees 
gave their club a positive en- 
dorsement at the annual "Hail 
and Farewell" party May 14. 

Problems such as no regu- 
larly-scheduled meeting times 
and new publicity restrictions 
undoubtedly influenced other 
clubs in their decision to dis- 
band. Mount "Jiterary-ites," 
however, decided that Parnas- 
sian discussions, guest speak- 
ers and panels add a vital 
thread to the web of Mount 
life, as well as being too en- 
joyable to discontinue. 

Challenging Future 

A board of five members, 
with each class represented, 
was elected to lead the way 
into the new, streamlined era 
heralded by constitutional 

changes. Peg Langhans, Mar- 
ian Menges, Camille Eseelle, 
Ginny Speltz and Colleen Du- 
rant accepted the challenge.

Gertrude von LeFort, one 
of the greatest of contempor-

in her book, The Judgment of

occupied with the themes of

A shocking and illuminating 
book is Black Lifee Me, in 
which John Griffin, a white

res. Tells of Year... 

Senior Class President 

1961-62 has been a hectic, 
hurried, but wonderfully ex- 
citing year for the senior class. 

It has been a year of 21st 
birthday celebrations, first re- 
gistration to vote and FAST- 

It has been an exciting year 
academically as girls began to 
really penetrate their major 
fields in special seminars, stu- 
dent teaching, sociology field 
work, public health and psy- 
chiatric nursing, recitels, 
theses, and in service labora- 
tory technology training. 

Socially, the class has en- 
joyed Senior Exchanges with 
Loyola Law School and the 
Bra- Vets of U.C.L.A. The cal- 
endar has also included Senior 
Nights Out which took the 
class to the Circus, to West 
Side Story and to the Biltmore 
for the UnsinkabJe Molly 

It's been a proud year, too. 
»»> the seniors voted un- 
animouslj to contribute a size- 
able portion of the yearbook 
allotment to the Rebuilding 
Fund, and as they came out 
95% strong to lead the school 
in the voting for student body 

And it has been a year of 
decisions as the talk at dinner 
and in the smokers turned 
frequently to graduate schools, 
travel plans, job interviews, 
and of course wedding plans. 

But it is all the things that 
go into graduating which set 
the pace for fhe Senior Year. 

There is that nervous count- 
ing and recounting of units and 
days, the selection of year- 
book pictures, the ordering of 
graduation announcements, the 
race to finish the theses, the 
empty-headed sensation after 
taking the general Graduate 
Record Exams, the unique ex- 
perience of Comprehensives, 
the initiation into the Alum- 
nae Association, the Junior- 
Senior Prom, and the anticipa- 
ion of the last few days which 
will include a Senior Retreat 
at Valyermo, a day at New- 
port, the Baccalaureate Mass 
and conferring of the academic 
hoods, the Senior Banquet, the 

.Senior Farewell Party, and 

finally Graduation. 

And as we climb the steps 

to receive our diplomas on 
June 3, we will probably feel 
many things. There will be 
leve and gratitude to our par- 
ents and teachers. There will 
be that feeling of "I can't be- 
lieve it, I finished everything 
on time!" And there will be 
the nostalgia that will ac- 
company the realization thai 
after today all these girls to 
whom we've grown so close 
will go, their separate ways. 

But then again, we can take 
consolation in the fact that 
with about one-third of the 
class getting married in the 
next few months, it will be 
like a class reunion every Sat- 
urday morning! 

honored both near and far 

By all, because of the joy for 
learning they had. 

Arriving, much with fear, they 
found a campus, 

A campus wherein learning 
had first place, 

Where teachers had the great- 
est renown. 

For what did they come? What 
deeds would they do? 

What tasks would teachers, of 
disciplines, sciences, and hu- 

Place before them to prove 
their scholarship? 

Could they be persevering in 
study ? 

There were others here — up- 
perciassmen by name — 

Whose task it was to "orien- 
tate" them, to show 

These new ones the arts of 
college life. By 

Military order it was done, by 
"left" and by "right." 

And from that time long ago, 
each one cherished the aims 
that this 

College had, and guarded 
them, too. 

Time passed, and they came 
to form the nucleus of this 
new land. 

A group proud in its strength, 
born to be leaders, 

And to raise up new order — so 
the old spinners planned for 

Now, seeing all this, they re- 
member well even more: 
When causes were championed 
for the want and joy of es- 
pousal — 
Together with ethic and phil- 
osophic reason evident 

Your chapel, your cloister wide . . . 

In such causes — ; when the 
heart thrilled to what 

Mind found to be true; when 
causes were freely 

Taken and truths freely 

So great a task it was to gain 

And they see, still it is . . .

Ginny Speltz will serve next 
year as Young Christian Stu- 
dents Co-ordinator. She joined 
the group in the first semester 
of her freshman year. Since 
then she has led groups for 
two semesters. Besides YCS, 
Ginny is active in Parnassi- 
ans, Pi Theta Mu, and the 
Christian Life Institute. Here 
she states the significance of 
YCS on campus and her per- 
sonal intentions as leader for 
next year. 

"YCS has a quiet but highly 
important role to play on cam- 
pus. We hear much of the 
"Christian Woman" but most 
often it is simply a catchy 
word. To put Christ into our 
lives, in the true sense, takes 
an extra something. YCS pro 
vides this extra somehing. The 
organization does not raise 
any flags or blow any whistles. 

"Each group decides on a 
topic that is considered worth 
discussion and this is carried 
throughout the semester con- 


plans for the CCD on the 
Mount campus next year. This 
organization is concerned with 
teaching our faith to Catholic 
children in public schools. These

These students — by their own 
admission — have not read 
N.S.A. material; they have no 
way of knowing for themselves 
whether or not the charges 
levied at N.S.A. — by obviously 
biased accounts — are correct. 

Perhaps il is the opinion of 
these students that exposure 
In any literature and/or speak- 
ers suspected of Communistic 
inclinations endangers their 
own philosophy of life. If this 
is the case, if these students 
are actually so afraid of Com- 
munism that they would 
rather hide their heads, os- 
trich-like, than understand and 
fight, we contend that such a 
philosophy as they proclaim to 
defend is woefully weak and in- 


Pat, who has taught a va- 
riety of groups, including a 
sixth grade class, hopes to get 
more girls interested in the 
Mount CCD tli rough a vigor- 
ous publicity campaign. 

The following is her state- 
ment concerning the CCD: 

"It is most gratifying and 
rewarding to see the knowl- 
edge of these children grow 
and to see how lucky we are 
to have the advantages of a 
Catholic education. Statistics 
show that by the time most 
of us have children of school 
age, there will be a great 
shortage of Catholic Schools, 
so that educated girls for 
teaching the faith are and will 
be really necessary."
